CPD in the Lakes
Spent today in Langdale on the first day of a CPD workshop provided by AMI and run by Chris Ensoll. The workshop is on often misunderstood topic of short roping and Chris has a strong background in this area from his background training other British Mountain Guides. Had a great day looking at coaching mountaineering movement and the use of the rope in various fashions in ascent and descent. Got confirmation that a lot of the techniques I have discovered/adapted/copied for myself are used by other Instructors/Guides too and and some great pointers for making my own techniques even stronger and slicker. More tomorrow!
