Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling. Due to the length and extended endurance required and because accidents are more likely to happen on the descent than the ascent, rock climbers do not usually climb back down the route. Professional rock climbing competitions have the objectives of either completing the route in the quickest possible time or attaining the farthest point on an increasingly difficult route.
Rappelling, also known as “Abseiling”, involves breaking the descent from heights in a controlled way. It requires sliding across a path by means of a rope and one’s security is assured by use of good knotting techniques, harness or other safety equipments. Rock climbers use this protected technique to traverse steep areas of a mountain which can otherwise prove to be dangerous. As a recreational activity, this adrenaline pumping activity is enjoyable across age groups, professional and personal backgrounds. There are different levels of difficulties to choose from, as a beginner all one needs is an open mind and an adventurous spirit.
River Crossing requires that groups must cross a 'river' using on the tools available. The entire team must cross at the same time. At the beginning, the goal (the other side of the river) is clear to everyone. As the team moves into the middle of the river, everyone's perspective changes - some are in front, some in back and no one can see the same thing, or have the same information, as everyone else. Occasionally mistakes are made and the person in back, or the least likely to lead which is why they are in the back, must now take charge and tell everyone what to do. Throughout the entire activity, everyone's perspective is constantly changing and the information changes. Communication must be clear to cross the river in time.
