On Sunday 18 April, there will be an abseil training session at Mt Boyce near Blackheath. The area has bolted anchors and is a short walk from the car park. The day will be “do your own thing” which has been very successful in the past. You can learn to prussik or practise your prussik skills. I will have a VT prussik for you to try. There will be opportunities to try out different descenders and hand ascenders, learn knots and rig anchors. You can share ideas with other members. We will set up releasable anchors, lowering systems and haul systems. Ropes will be provided. You can bring your own ropes, extra carabiners and usual equipment.
A rope protector or piece of carpet is a good idea. Some of the edges wear ropes.
Members attending this training must have experience in canyoning. You can arrive and leave when you like. Please book in.
