The Hyderabad Adventure Club is organising an outing of rappelling and bouldering at Moulali Hills on 22nd August, from 05:45 am. Participants will be assembling at the foot of the Moulali Dargah.
The session begins with an introduction of the activity, with information about the climbing and rappelling equipment - carabiners, descenders, harnesses and rappelling ropes. A demonstration of rappelling techniques and anchoring and safety system will be conducted, followed by guided attempts by participants.
Then, you get to experience it all by roping 160 feet down at an 80 degree vertical angle.
Rappelling, abseiling or canyoning is a technique of descent from vertical faces with the aid of ropes and specialized rappelling equipment. It is considered the quickest and easiest way to get a taste of mountaineering, and also has a psychological application in boosting confidence and courage.
If you're up for participation, you must wear full track pants and T-shirts, sport or trekking shoes (preferably with knee support) and a sun cap, and carry a water bottle. You may get along some fruits, juices, energy bars or something to munch on after and during the trek. And those who're avid photographers can also carry a camera to take a few snaps.
