Repelling Off Bakers by Elle
Yesterday, during outdoor pursuits, I went repelling down Bakers. Repelling is when you go down the mountain instead of climbing up. You need a climbing harness and a belay to attach to the rope. You also need a bathing suit because we dropped into the water at the end of the rope. Bakers is a bridge near camp that is really high. We usually jump off the rocks into the freezing cold water, but yesterday we also repelled. It was fun and scary because I thought I was going to drop. I even jumped off the extremely high rock.
