03 Feb Burma Bridge
The name ‘Burma Bridge’ is acquired from hanging bridges used extensively in Burma during World War II to cross numerous rivers. A Burma Bridge is usually constructed over a ditch, pond or a gorge, reasonably above the ground. It has three ropes set in a triangular fashion –a bottom foot rope (or cable) on which you walk and two ropes that serve as a ‘railing’ held by your hands. The bridge swings slightly making it a challenge to balance, as you walk. As with any high traversing element, an overhead belay cable parallels the lower cables, and acts as a safety measure. It’s a good choice for those feeling highly challenged just by being at elevation. A confidence building exercise which calls for concentration.
