This event aims at polishing your abseiling skills. You will be able to:

  • check how does it fill to abseil on different kind of ropes
  • check the difference between abseiling on a tuber/reverso, figure eight and HMS carabiner
  • practice resuming abseiling after taking a break in the middle
  • practice useful tricks like a quick abseil in a team of three
  • practice climbing up the rope

To take part in this event you should already know how to abseil. You don't need to know how to set up the rope for abseiling though.
