MALAITA WALLS – 30 May 2021
Since my fall back in April (although I was on firm ground when I fell), I’d only abseiled once and that was a little daunting despite being only 10m! However, Johan had invited me on an abseil trip to Malaita Walls, so I thought it was a good idea to get back on the horse. Even though I’d done the Walls a few times, I’d forgotten how exposed it is!
Johan was introducing his nephew Andrew and Andrew’s girlfriend Bronte to multi-pitch abseiling (and probably eventually canyoning). Johan invited Rob C and me along to help out (not that we did much) and for a fun day out. It had been many, many years since either Johan, Rob or I had done this abseil trip, so it was like the first time for us all.
We were down the bottom just after lunch, all safe and sound. It was a really great trip and I now feel much more comfortable about getting back to abseiling and canyoning.
Thank you JV for inviting me and thanks to Rob, Andrew and Bronte for your company, a great day out, hope to see you on a canyon next season!
