Vertical Descents, hosted by Nae Limits and run by American Canyoning guru Rich Carlson. Rich is sort of the Yoda of the canyoneering (as its called in the States) with a tremendous amount of experience at home and working alongside various other Asscoiations in France, Spain and Australia to name but a few. The course provided a good introduction into the nature of techncial ropework involved in descending rocky swiftwater canyons.
Thursday night I was in Glasgow eating Neal's excellent roadkill pheasant, Friday was a day run to Kendal where the Climbing Wall were hosting a BMC Learning to Train workshop for coaches looking to teach specific movement techniques. After waiting for a crash to be cleared by police and fire services just south of Fort William I was home at 1 in the morning to start an SPA Training which ran yesterday and today.
