On friday night a few people who are going to CRETE (why aren’t you ALL coming) on the summer expedition went to the tower in Rotherham for some rescue training. Lots got done and theres still lots more to learn (after exams which are almost killing everyone) Not quite Crete but with the heat the past few days it may have well been.
I enjoyed rescuing Tom and cutting the rope he was on WITH SOME STRING (surprisingly easy to do) leaving him on one strand of the core of the rope… After a gentle decent an accidental knee in the balls concluded the ’successful’ ‘rescue’.
We then both wracked our brains to remember how to do a Z -rig which after some deliberation managed to lift a Sam sized bag.
Everyone else did much of the same and all in all a useful evening in the sun was had learning essential stuff.
