Our team had to design a poster about the safety requirements in rock climbing especially the types of equipment and the usage of them. The categories that we came up with were the figure of eights, major requirements to climb, carabiners, and auto-belay. The picture on the left is our draft.
We used an app called Canva to edit and Create our posters. It was really easy to add any contents we wanted by using this app. We added pictures and icons that matched our specific descriptions of the poster. After realizing that there were some icons that were not matching the descriptions and were not as necessary, we found other images/icons that matched the descriptions in our poster. For more attention to the audience, we added an interesting background.
What did you do well?
I did well in cooperating with others when belaying, climbing, and making posters for a better understanding of
What did you discover or learn?
I learned how to belay more easily and how to transition from one place to another. I also learned more techniques that I can use when using different grips in situations where there are grips that are unfamiliar and hard to use when elevating up.
What challenges did you face? + How did you overcome them?
I faced challenges where I had to use grips that do not support as much weight of my body to elevate up in certain places. I overcame the challenges by transitioning left or right to places with grips that are more supportive of my body which helped me elevate up the wall more easily. I also face challenges where the angles of the walls were not straight but tilted. The tilted angle made it harder to elevate up because the angle was making me hang from the wall which required a lot of my strength and made me tired.
