The Great Hyderabad Adventure Club is organising a rapelling/ bouldering at the Moulali Hills on 15th January 2011, from 6am to 8am. Participants will be assembling at the foot of the Moulali Dargah.
The session begins with an introduction of the activity of rappelling, with information about climbing and rappelling equipment like carabiners, descenders, harnesses and rappelling ropes. There will be a demonstration of rappelling techniques and anchoring and safety systems, followed by guided attempts by participants.
Rappelling, abseiling or canyoning is a technique of descent from vertical faces with the aid of ropes and specialized rappelling equipment. It is the quickest and easiest way to get a taste of mountaineering. Perfect as an introductory adventure, rappelling also has a psychological application in boosting confidence and courage.
Everyone should wear full track pants and T-shirts, sport shoes and a sun cap, and carry a water bottle. They can also get some fruits, juices, energy bars or something to munch on after and during the trek. Those interested can also carry a camera to take a few snaps.
