29/07/2016 – AOA Abseiling
The controlled descent of a vertical drop, such as a rock face, using a rope.
First the general safety talk, how to use the carabiner clips, how to climb up the ladder, what to do at the top, etc.
So here we go, I am keen to have a try at this.
Yes, I’ll let this very clever lady hook me up correctly before taking the plunge over the side.
Hey, this isn’t so bad, all of my weight is supported by the harness, I just have to let the rope go through my hands.
Hmm, the landing could need a bit more practice.
I want another turn please.
Piece of cake.
Whoops, something went wrong that time.
Happy faces, yes we had a really good afternoon. Hui Lin, Roxanne, Pamela, Suzanne, Des, Narelle, Julie and Peggy.
