When you travel cross-country, constantly faced with obstacles and natural traps. To get to salvation, it is necessary move quickly, as soon as possible. But move through impassable forests and swamps, mountains and sand dunes – very difficult. These marches were taken precious time and effort. In this article we will talk about one interesting technique of movement in hilly or mountainous terrain.
For example, before you the descent of unstable rock: Sand dune; hillside, dotted with boulders; relatively gentle slope of the mountain, covered with loose gravel, etc. Before that, you already had to spend a lot of effort to climb this natural obstacle, and now have to descend. It makes no sense to climb down, for fear of falling (if certainly not sverhtrudny descent). There is the so-called Equipment downhill on such a natural mound. Let’s try to fix it.
Thus, the problem lies in the rapidly escaping from the slope, holding the balance and maneuvering between obstacles. Do not go down into the first place – you need to choose the most gentle and uniform section. Equally important to the bottom, at the foot there are no sharp stones or shrubs, as at the end of the descent we develop a fair speed, and braking is necessary to clean the obstacle area.
Before the descent, Grouping: Presses his shoulders and leaned it forward; We move the feet closer to each other, that there was an imbalance footholds – otherwise it is easy to stumble and roll head over heels down; hands slightly divorce to their maneuvering like wings, to keep the balance. And run down the slope. Of course, you need not so much to flee headlong, and brake down, slowing down the speed. The body should try to keep upright. Otherwise, you may be filled up on his back and swam down, collecting sharp rocks back and backside. And if you lean too forward – You can kuvyrknutsya and roll is fraught with more serious injuries. The technique of downhill It should work on small slopes and gradually, along with the experience, and to complicate the slopes.
The method of movement Cross-country is very effective, though risky. In any case, the one who owns it – advantage!
