Climbing at Hiidenkirnut, Rovaniemi

Ready for abseiling

On September 2010 we did the module 1 and now managed to complete module 2 (KTO 2).

All in all the two days was full of recalling learnings from the module 1, lot's of new things to learn and varying weather of course. I haven't been climbing before on thunderstorm and such a heavy rain, which made the rock slippery as ice. The test to become a qualified rope work supervisor will be on October, but before it there's a 6 month summer to practice...
