[CANCELLED] [FULL] Abseil Skills 2 @ Glenbrook, Blue Mountains

Hello adventurers,

It’s time to take your abseil skills to the next level by learning how to set up an abseil and deploy various knots appropriately. You will also be introduced to prussiks and their applications. This skills session aims to get you confident with rigging abseils and using multiple knots, hitches, and prussiks to conduct yourself safely and efficiently through an abseiling event.
