This Saturday I'm planning to do Boars Head, a nice multi pitch abseiling route near Katoomba. Since this is likely not going to take the whole day, we'll do another route in the afternoon, depending on time and what we feel like doing. Possibilities for the afternoon include Malaita Wall, Whores Bed and Wall of Africa.

The trip is suitable for intermediate abseilers. This means that you must be able to get on the rope and down a pitch on your own without supervision. You have to be able and comfortable to abseil without a bottom belay.

On this trip, I'm happy to teach how to use an autoblock as self-belay. This part is optional and only if people want to learn it. Please note, that in order to use autoblock safely, you must be able to use prusiks. You must have your own prusiks as well as a safety knife.

I'll bring the ropes for the trip. You must have all your own personal abseiling gear (minimum of harness descender, helmet, glove) or organise to borrow it from the club.

We tried to do this trip last weekend but had to cancel it due to the weather. Thus, I will give preference to those who were signed up for the original trip.
