Michael, Alpine Training, Fort William, May 2015
Just a note to say thanks for a great weekend. I hope Andy won’t be embarrassed if I say he was a brilliant coach and great company. He managed to impart a huge amount of knowledge without (completely) boggling my mind:
• Glacier travel and moving with the rope
Natural and placed gear
• Simple rope work
• Abseiling short pitches / retreat
• Alpine hazards and route planning
Of course, there’s only so much my brain could absorb in 24 hours but I’ll try to keep the skills fresh until the summer. Andy - could you remind me of the book you mentioned? Was it Alpine Mountaineering by Bruce Goodlad?
Anyway, thanks again for a brilliant course. Hope to climb with you again soon.
All the best, Michael Berthon
