3 M - Abseiling
Abseil Training for Beginners
This is a basic abseil training day at Mt Boyce near Blackheath. and is intended for members who walk with UBMBC and who have not abseiled previously. It will cover ropes, anchors and equipment, safety checks, personal anchors, abseiling technique and belay. The venue at Mt Boyce has progressively steeper cliff faces that are ideal for training. Following the training we drive to Medlow Bath where we put skills into practice in Juggler Canyon, which has 6 abseils. The day ends with a lovely walk through part of the Grand Canyon. Members who complete the training successfully will be approved to attend easier canyons on the UBMBC program. You will need a helmet, harness, carabiner and descender. Equipment must be approved to European or North American safety standards. Bicycle helmets and helmets from other sports are not acceptable. Please do not buy new equipment, you will be given advice on the day, which includes shops that offer discounts for UBMBC members. I also have equipment for loan for the day. Before booking in for this program please read Guidelines for Canyoners on the UBMBC website. Members must have done at least one bushwalk with UBMBC and have completed a non-abseil canyon (eg Grand Canyon, Du Faurs Canyon, Rocky Creek )Canyoning involves carrying wet suits, ropes and equipment as well as scrambling over slippery rocks and climbing in steep, rugged country. A suitable level of fitness and agility is required.
