There will be two main difficulties: (1) Your team has to translate information correctly from the map to the ground and navigate with a compass, and (2) You will have to work as an efficient team and get to Hieowayo (the outcrop in question) together. Any team that gets to the top as an inefficient team will lose vital points.
Once teams arrive at Station Hieowayo, each team will have to strap into helmets, harnesses and safety gear, stand at the edge of the granite rock, lean back and abseil (rappel) the precipitous Hieowayo on ropes as thick as a man’s middle finger within the time allotted. Teams that do not get all their members to abseil in the time allotted will lose vital points as well.
The winning team will be the team that navigates correctly and works efficiently, while keeping themselves motivated to abseil within time.
