Lat week I was working for Glenmore Lodge on an MIA Assessment. On monday I was left to the paperwork whilst the team headed in to Coire an t Sneachda to climb on 4c ground. After that we were at Huntly's Cave for problem solving and again for teaching climbing (showery days but Huntly's gave us dry rock and a breeze to keep the midges off, it was also perfect for our mock students' needs) then Liathach in Torridon for the mountain day before a last half day looking at tracking Navigation in the Cairngorms.
Its a high pressure week for the guys. Their logbooks reflected how much effort they had put in preparing for this assessment. The 5 day's of activity are designed to examine all the major roles and MIA could fill- which is quite a lot to look at in a short time!
Well done to the guys and congratulations for the major effort last week. They looked tired at the end of it all.... and so was I!
