This is an opportunity to learn how to abseil alone, with the supervision of a certified rock-climbing instructor.
This activity is also for newbie into rock climbing and abseiling. Only a little experience with hiking and familiar with altitude and exposure is necessary. We will be strapping on the harness, the helmet and come down from cliffs of rock with rope and repelling equipment.
This trip will be limited to 6 participants only to ensure each person has adequate supervision by the guides and trainers!
We will be climbing from morning to afternoon. The location of the meeting point will be shared to the participants before the event starts.
In this event, we will learn:
- An overview of different repel devices
- Practice abseiling hold by an instructor
- Abseil alone with supervision
- The basics of a via Ferrata progression and safety
- Equipment maintenance
- How to chose the right equipment
You have some basic experience with hiking and exposure to cliffs.
INCLUDED IN THE FEE
Certified Rock Climbing Instructor for the whole day and necesary gear for the activity.
You need to reach the start location with your own car.
If you don't have a car, there will always be people joining from Dubai or Abu Dhabi and they can car pool you.
WHAT TO BRING
You will need to bring lunch, snacks, water, drinks, etc for the day. You should also dress appropriately for being outdoors whether you prefer long sleeve, short sleeve shirts, shorts/pants, is your own preference but definitely have a jacket and maybe wool hat and gloves in case it gets cold or rains. We still will climb if cold and even if rain is not too much. Also bring appropriate sun protection, i.e. sunscreen, lip balm, sun hat, sunglasses.
You should have sturdy shoes for walking in the wadi to the crag but you may want sandals or flip flops while hanging around at the crag in between climbs. I also recommend to bring a camping chair so you can sit and relax when not climbing or belaying.
If you have climbing shoes, harness, helmet please bring them. If you don't have climbing shoes then plan to wear solid sneakers or hiking shoes. weak/flimsy shoes will be no good and neither will big, bulky hiking boots. If you don't have a harness or helmet I will have extras on hand. All other gear and equipment will be provided.
