Amazing abseiling by Sam
Hello, I'm Sam and I am going to talk about the climbing and abseiling activity. Our Adventure started on the minibus. We were listening to BBC Radio Two and Brian told us to guess the band; it was The Cure. Brian called them the band with only one song but I know that is not true because I have one of their albums.
Later on we got out of the bus and crossed the road. Graham said, "keep our helmets on at all times just incase of falling rocks."
Brian said, "if you hear anyone shouting rope below put your heads down."
While we were waiting, me and Matthew could still find a way to enjoy our selves by cheering on Hamish when he was abseiling and making a macarena for each country. Every five minutes Brian would bellow out, "rope below." Finally it was my go. There was only one hard bit it was when you had to put your right foot on a very thin rock and then had to reach with your left foot very very high up. When I got to the top I felt proud but then it took ages to get my harness off. I now had to get ready for the ginormous abseiling rock. When it was time for my go I had to face Brian while he was putting my harness on. I looked down over the rock and it was so high I got a shiver. After a while of getting scared and standing on the edge of the thing that I was getting scared of falling but eventually I managed to step back and walk down the rock. I made it.
This was the best activity in Benmore because I faced up to my fears.
