Amelia Peels off down the bluff!

Amelia’s Awesome Abseiling

I went abseiling at camp.

What do you know about abseiling?
First you have to put a harness on.
Then you clip a karabiner onto your harness
and put the rope through the figure eight.
You need a glove on your right hand so
that you don’t burn your hand on the rope.
You hold the rope in your right hand behind your bottom
and carefully feed the rope through it. Then you can slide,
jump and bounce down the hill.

I wanted to do it again even though it was scary.
