Day 1: High-ropes and these aren’t just any high-ropes but death defying zip-wires over a gorge!
Challenge 1: The high-rope course across the gorge.
All smiles! (until we look down!)
Don’t look down!
Who can spot Gill? She said someone had to stay on the ground to look after the bags…..hmm
All made it across the the first section!
and the massively unsupported section in the middle, over the gorge.
Some of the guides abseiled down to see if the leaders were ok…below.
Proudly making the last section of the high-ropes.
And because we are guides, the death-defying high-ropes over the gorge wasn’t a challenge enough! Time to abseil from the bridge.
Challenge 2: The abseil down from the bridge.
Safety checks done! Now to climb over the barrier!
New profile picture I think…..
Now for Rachel to face her challenge (such a flattering angle!)
Challenge Number 3 – Zipwire across the Gorge
Rachel all ready to jump!
Now time for Francesca to make the leap!
What’s that I hear you cry….is it a bird? No! …..Is it a plane? No!…It must be a 1st Henley Guide!
All action packed out…now to hike back to the Chalet.
Some of us make friends on the way home…..
While others…accidentally knock the head off our new friend!
Oh no Francesca has found another “interesting” river feature!
The hike back is worth it for the views….
…and the four leaf clover we found. Lets hope it brings lots of good luck for the rest of the trip and beyond.
