Boys' Uniformed Group: Activities--Repelling

Figure 1.--This English Ranger is being intoduced to repelling. He belongs to the Pheonix Rangers.

One especially challenginh activity is repelling. The British call it something like abseling. It is often combined with a climbing program. Facilities for such programs are difficult to maintain Some groups in recent yearshave built climbing walls. Repelling is a very demanding program. Usually older boys are involved in this activity, but the actual varies with the program. Climbing and repelling are very challenging activities. These activities help build confidence and allow boys to "push the envelope," all while having fun.
