Abseil & Tyrolean Traverse

On September 25th and 26th 2010, Katie took part in a sponsored Abseil and Tyrolean Traverse for the Woking Hospice charity, raising over 180.

This took place at the Dukes Court office complex in Woking. This 7-storey block was the local lair of HMRC, but got scarier still this particular weekend.

Katie Abseiling
Katie did the Abseil on Saturday, coming down very quickly and confidently. The organisers were so impressed, they asked if she would like to do it again. So she did!

Katie's Tyrolean Traverse
If stepping backwards off a 7-storey building were not scary enough, the Tyrolean Traverse on Sunday was terrifying...for everyone except Katie.
Instead of simply coming down, this involved going from the top of one tower across a huge gulf to the other tower. And back.
