Right after our brefing, our Eco Challenge Chief, Mr. Zul led us to the forest for our first activity. We were told that we would be performing abseiling or rappelling where participants would need to decent down on a 45 degrees wooden platform using a rope. Cool!
Suddenly I feel like I am in an espionage role for one of those Mission Impossible movies. Though I had been involved in numerous team building activities in the past, it was the first time I tried abseiling. Hats off to Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort for introducing such a unique outdoor activity for the bloggers.
While it may look frightening at first, the team of marshals were there to brief us on the safety procedures and teaching us the proper technique to hold the rope and using our body weight to decent down the wooden platform.
The marshals were all very friendly and helpful. After trying the abseiling myself, I find it really fun. And best of all, it wasn’t difficult to walk down the platform with the safety harness attached to our body. After having our first go, we have to perform the same act but this time, our body was facing forward.
All in all, it was great fun and all the bloggers managed to complete the task.
