Two weeks ago our Certificate IV Outdoor Recreation students camped at White Water Wall, a beautiful part of Freycinet National Park. It is a world-class rock climbing and abseiling area with many ideal locations along the granite-covered coast for us to hone our skills in becoming instructors. This is also the area where we will be assessed in a month’s time.
We were drenched with rain for the first couple of days but we still carried on with our plan. We spent our days on the cliffs and our nights doing more study and talking about group management when leading our school groups. The sun finally came out!
We are well on our way to becoming Basic Abseiling Instructors and Top Rope Instructors which are qualifications that will allow us to join the Tasmanian Climbing Instructors Association.
