Dampish and wet conditions in the hills just now.
There has been a short lived one day thaw in the North West but its turning colder tonight, we can expect frost down to low levels and the roads could be slippy tonight. Look out for Red Deer. Stay local, please keep safe!

A busy IRATA rope access training and assessment day with Applus. Everyone passed, with two candidates gaining excellent. Well done chaps.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions we use Manakins for rescue
and everyone keeps at lest two meters apart.
Some of the training centres in the Scotland's central belt are closing for several weeks but many of the guys are essentially employees in the Oil business or using Industrial rope access skills on steep embankments, clearing landslides, making embankments safe with rock stabilisation and netting. There is a strict regime of re-training every three years to keep us all up to date and well versed in new techniques and developments.
