At our Rock School for corporate teams learn the techniques to climb up a rock and belay a fellow climber safely. Borderlands’ professionally qualified instructors will teach you how to use and maintain your climbing equipment efficiently, the proper techniques in climbing and setting up a climbing route.
Rock School features a giant ladder which is hoisted 80 ft off the ground. It requires two climbers and two belayers and will test your ability to manage fear whilst trying to perform under stress and pressure. The objective of this activity is for two climbers to ascend this ladder with the each other’s support, physically and mentally. The climbers start climbing up a cargo net individually but the ascent gradually becomes harder and climbers need to offer each other support to get to the top.
Communication is vital. Clear instructions and vocal support from teammates on the ground will go a long way to ensure the climbers feel secure, safe and not to mention confident enough to scale the ladder. High rope events are great activities which help facilitate and understanding in the importance of team support and motivation. Our Rock School is located two and a half hours out of Colombo at the MIMT facility in Thulhiriya.
