Abseiling- extreme sport, and its really popular nowadays. It`s a controlled descent down from a height. Abseiling takes place all over the world, because you can use any high mountains, walls and skyscrapers.
At the beginning of the XX century, German climber Hans Johannes Emil Dülfer, first «abseiler», used only a rope to go down the mountain. He kept a rope in his hands like on the first picture. Later, other climbers used a rope and carbine like on the second picture.
Nowadays, for abseiling you must use a strong rape, different carbines, special device- «eight», your hands and climbing skills. If you are a beginner, you need good insurance, too.
Today abseiling is a part of our life. In the city we can see cleaners of skyscrapers- they go abseiling every day, because this is their job.
Special forces are needed to abseil, too. The Australian army- the first army in the world, that includes abseiling in trainings.
Abseiling is very dangerous, and people, who go in for abseiling are really brave, active and strong. And sometimes crazy.
