As mountain professionals, formalised CPD is rightly here to stay and so I experienced another development day covering short roping on technical ground. For the uninitiated this means bringing a client or two up and down scrambling and climbing terrain in short and efficient sections with minimal equipment. To the untrained some of the small (about tennis ball size) spikes or flakes of rock that we used to hang off would be lethal if not loaded and managed appropriately. That is why you should use the services of Earthly Edge. We only ever use qualified and experienced Instructors and Facilitators on our courses.
