My favorite time at camp was going rock climbing beside Lake Kiriopukae. Right next to the lake was a natural rock that had plants and it was something that we could climb up. We went to the lake because is was right next to Michael Noonan's grave. Michael Noonan was a armed constabulary dispatcher from Onepoto to Wairoa.
Rock climbing was started in the 1880’s and was invented in Wales, Britain.
Rock climbing is when you climb up a natural rock face and reach the top or the summit of it. The record height of rock climbing in 24 hours is 29,130ft it is 1370ft. The fastest time in speed climbing is someone climbed up a 15 meter wall in 6.26 seconds. When you are rock climbing you only use hands, feet and gear like rope and harnesses. In the sport the most common injury is when you get sore fingers from the rock and climbing a far distance.
What, When, Who, Where and Why
I choose climbing up the rock because it was really fun and enjoyable.
On Monday the 27th of May Rm 17 went to Camp Kaitawa. When we got there Miss Hill and Mrs Roil took us to see Michael Noonan. He is buried next to Lake Kiriopukae
Next to the lake is a big giant rock and that is what we climbed up.
I would like to try climb up the other side of the Giant rock
When we went to Lake Kiriopukae it was all dried up and was in two big ponds and had a little creek going around to the other half.
