|For me it was my first time assessing at this training centre in Glasgow.|
|All performed well and passed. Wonderful to see another lady pass her assessment, there are no so many women working at height from the ropes. and yet when I get the opportunity to assess they are always performing to a high standard on the ropes.|

We have had a super nice time and so lucky with the weather on Mont Blanc these last few days. The Grand Couloir has become rather loose again with lots of rock fall. We had to wait and watch as stones tumbled and slid by then time our short traverse to minimise any risk of being struck by falling stones as we made our way across. It turned out well but we were their early in the morning. Speaking to other teams who crossed later in the day the situation had worsened.
