take a deep breath

So here we are, on the final straight. After months of waiting your epic descent of Venezuela’s Angel Falls is just around the bend, so it’s about time we looked a little closer into the challenge you’re about to undertake.

To give you an idea of what you’re in for and to highlight Dave’s point about exposure on the abseil, we’ve put together the following topo, detailing each pitch for the first day of the abseil. Though it’s a somewhat simple depiction of what to expect, hopefully this gives you a solid understanding of the length of the pitches you’ll be completing and also your proximity to the world’s largest waterfall… Exciting huh?!

If you’re not excited by now, you will be after this. We hope the training is going well, as always if you have any concerns or questions at this stage, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
