A delicate world

Saw the Mariinsky ballet at the Royal Opera House in London last night,  www.victorhochhauser.co.uk
Such dedication, truly amazing!

Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theartre conductor was Gavriel Heine
Meanwhile I spend much of my life climbing through cornices or scratching granite walls with crampon points or climbing with chalked up fingers!

Its a delicate world eh?

IRATA and insight!

Interesting magazine article , the cover picture shows an IRATA Rope Access technicians harvesting weld inspection data on an offshore oil platform utilising Eddy Current inspection, and transfers the data direct to the office experts via wi-fi ( one assumes in Aberdeen, but I suppose it could be anywhere).

Rigmar had a very successful training course this week, congrats to instructors and candidates.
