Some twenty years after I last had a go at abseiling I’m at it again!  My Scouts on camp all got to take part in the activity and I didn’t want to miss out.  I realised that as soon as I started to descend and took weight off my prosthetic that gravity would take over causing the leg to bend and not be useful.  My rheo knee lacks a locking mechanism so I simply had to use one leg alone.  It was quite an effective technique and I was looking good until I misjudged my landing and nearly ended up sat on the floor.  Looks like I need more practice!
