Abseiling Training & Fun

Over the weekend I was involved in a training and social weekend with a number of members of the Blue Skies Abseil Team and other invited guests at Windy Point near the Lewis Pass.

We covered some training on setups for rock face abseiling (as opposed to the normal setups for the Tower at Blue Skies) and practices a number of abseils using different belay techniques and using a variety of decender devices.

Some of the session was on a small rock face, about 4m, but most of the training was on a rock face of about 45m down to the Boyle River.
