The next day ,we assembled at 9 in the morning ,this was the most exciting as well strainfull day of the course as we were supposed to do many things. We were taught how to walk (up and down)and balance ourselves on the normal 30 degree inclined rock , by walking on toes ,bending forward we could easily balance ourselves on this rock. While descending the rock we supposed to shout ' I am falling' if we were to slip. This was so much fun as no single person was in sync in this exercise when instructor told us to fall.
Next, we started climbing rock inclined at 50 degrees. There were some commands to be told when we start climbing ,reach top and descend down.The moment we reach top , we would mess up the commands which were later turned into funny topics. One guy,on reaching the top was supposed to say 'Lower me' to bring him down ,he, not knowing English well and in excitement said 'low me' in such an accent which was perceived as 'Love me' by everyone, and with this stint he became the center of fun everytime throughout the course. We would tease him with just by saying that.
And then we tried rappelling down another rock which 90 degree inclined.This was easiest part of the course because we had to just hold the rope and walk down through the rock by laying back. After an amazing lunch ,we had another climbing session where the rock was in a mix of inclination of 60 and 70 degrees.Holding the rock, balancing the body on just toes, pushing yourself to climb the rock , finding the next edge to put feet on, slipping on the rock, trying to climb again was so exciting and tiring at the same time. It was said that this rock climb of 3mins would burn calories of 5km running.In the evening, we learnt different knots used in mountaineering.
The adventurous stories of our instructors who scaled different peaks of different continents inspired us to dare, dream and finally try these escapades.
