IBEX Climbing March 24,2002

IBEX safety instruction

Ben S. finishes his safety check before climbing: harness straps doubled back, tie in at fist width, 5 pairs of retrace through the figure eight, and finish with a tie off safety knot. And you thought Ron's square knot test was hard!


rock climbing

You can learn something new everyday. You learned how to do it, of course. But at the sametime you were having fun, you learned that you can build confidence in yourself by overcoming obstacles. Plus.. this wasn't about strength, it was about technique.
