Topic: Tips


Avoid getting pressure on your stomach if you do it the australian way (Face down) and especially if you had a meal or drink recently. A pair of good gloves and helmet is recommended. Also a pair of good pants.

One of our girls in the company did the fast rope face down puking on the guys below, we did catch it on film so perhaps I post an edited version of it on my web site...

so it is as easy as it seems then-just holding onto a rope and sliding down it with a pair of gloves on?

You need mountain climbing equipment as well

It is actually quite easy but you tire your legs pretty soon if you fail the technique (if you do it from great height.). Watch your rope, or else you end up dangling...

Contact a mountain climbing club - I am sure they are more than happy to let you have a try!
