Busy Wet Week

This week has been busy keeping the wolves from the door. I have been working at the weekend for Nav+art course directing their successful mountain marathon and adventure racing training weekend in North Lakes. Mixed warm wet weather provided great training and mini event conditions. During the week that followed another test for the Montane waterproofs and a new set of industrial showa gloves; ideal gloves for wet work outdoors. Please see link for more details.
I have been shadowing a Mountain Leader assessment and training course with Apex Training, a great company based in the Lake District fronted by Paul Platt. Thanks to all there for their help and hope to work with them again.

Wet Wet Wet Continues

The exceptionally wet weather devastating the UK and Cumbria was also making me feel under the weather. I was working for Adventures with Andy Brown and took some people up Skiddaw and then along another Wainwright favourite of Sharp Edge on Blencathra and backdown Halls Fell ridge. Both fantastic classic scrambles.
I really enjoyed the days and a real test for my Montane kit. This week am working for Patterdale Hall with a great group of 6th formers and then for Outward Bound at Eskdale.
If you would like to have some assisstance for your Wainwright completion please get in touch.

Wet Wet Wet

This week I have been working with Rolls Royce Apprentices in the Wet Lake District for Outward Bound Professional. It has rained and hailed and not much else. The group were new to Rolls Royce and to the Lakes. We covered a lot of training using different mediums including Abseiling, Canoeing and Raft Building on the ongoing development od the trainees. If you have any training needs please contact me for prices and dates. Have a look at the weather forecasts if you are planning to go into the mountains.
Last week I was working with an excellent group of Gurkha Soldiers again on an adventure training week. Its easy to see why they are respected the world over.
