Yesterday Miss 11 went abseiling! She tried it at Jamboree earlier this year but it didn't go so well so I suggested that she goes on a proper course and gives it another try.
She was a bit nervous but agreed and we signed up with Adventure Out for a 1/2 day (well 7am to 2pm) course for yesterday.
The course was run out at Boya Quarry and it was a perfect day weather-wise for it. It was initially quite cold at the quarry but then warmed up nicely when the sun finally hit. There were 9 other people on the course and two (fantastic) instructors.
Miss 11 was still a bit nervous but put it behind her (and with the support of her "partner") did the first cliff face (about 20m?) three times.
They had also set up a climbing area and she went about 15m up the climb before deciding that that was far enough.
Then she did the second cliff - which was an overhang - once. After some lunch they all attempted the "BIG" one - 58 metres.
However, she does want to go back and do the climbing course they run and also do the abseiling one again!
