Canyoning: a new trip ready for 2015

 

Recently¬†we’ve been exploring, checking out a new canyoning trip for you to get involved with. This trip is seriously full on: abseil after abseil over BIG flowing waterfalls, up to about 30meters high, an amazing inescapable gorge and a 10m free-fall drop that makes the Church Beck slide look like a kiddies playground.

Needless to say we’ve had a great time! Want to try it? Check out the pictures of the trip below:

Mountain Leader (Summer) Refresher: 2 days, 1 night in Coniston

 

Over the last couple of days, we’ve been running a 2-day overnight Summer ML Refresher for Dr Kirsty Watson. We pretty much covered off the whole syllabus, including plenty of time spent on the areas that tend to trip folk up, such as night-nav, poor visibility nav and rope work.

Good luck in your assessment Kirsty – you’ll nail it, I’m confident of that :)

Mountain Leader (Summer) Refresher: 2 days, 1 night in Langdale

 

Continuing on the ML Refresher theme, over the last two days Linda joined us for a refresher of her rope work, steep ground skills, micro nav and night navigation skills in preparation for her forthcoming assessment. 

White Ghyll, Blea Rigg, Martcrag Moor, Thunacar Knott and the Langdale Pikes provided the classroom, with a camp at the picturesque Angle Tarn. The weather was kind to say the least – today definitely felt like summer again!

Good luck Linda with your assessment.
