From Zero to hero

By Emma Sun
THE Pakenham Scouts and Venturers learnt to rope climb at the Grampians last weekend.
They set up camp at Staplyton, near Mount Zero. The group hiked up to the rock formations and learnt how to climb over the rock face. They were taught about safety, harnesses, helmets and approaching the rock face by the Scout Rock Climbing Team. Most of the scouts and venturers managed to make their way to the top before being lowered down.
The group encountered a curious wallaby during the night, who repeatedly ventured into tents to search for food.
After packing up tents and breaking camp the next morning, they hiked to the top of the mountain to see the magnificent view.
The leaders, scouts and venturers all had a very good time.
