High Ropes Course. In the ALPS!

So all of the Mechanical Engineering kids from Ulm University met up with some of the kids from the New-Ulm University and took a bus all the way to the base of the Alps for a little high ropes course climbing. Basically, a high ropes course is a series of courses that increase in difficulty. You have a 4 point harness and attachment clips to safety wires and you climb across bridges, swings, ropes, cables and nets. Me and Clint paired up for the day and had a really good time. We increased our difficulty each time we climbed. We managed to get to the third highest difficulty. It was a really good workout, especially with the wind swaying the trees that all of the obstacles were attached too.

For our last course we decided to do the fourth hardest course. About half way through I dislocated my knee. Was not a good feeling. So I had to hang 20 feet in the air and wait for the German climbing girl to rescue me. More or less, I was done for the day. I managed to get some good pictures too. My knee is better today, so its not the end of the world.

Look for pictures that I took of the day in my photos!
