Rope Access in France
I was assessing at Absolutio (Industrial Rope Access) in the Ardeche on Saturday. Its a very impressive set up with split level flooring which is great for training and assessing. The centre is manged by IFMGA mountain guide and IRATA member Bertrand Frayon. As part of the training course the candidates get the opportunity to abseil down a 180 m rock cliff to the river bank.The split level training area means that the candidates practise the skills at height but are always closley supervised by their instructors.
