Day 8 MIA training

Today was the last full day.  We headed to the Isle of Anglesey, just south of South stack.  We were tasked with setting up a traverse clip line and a Tyrolean traverse across the sea.  A while later we were zipping across the sea and traversing round the cliffs on the clip line.  After lunch we soloed down to sea level and headed round, knowing that if we slipped we would be dipping into our spear set of clothes.  To finish off the traverse we set up a Tyrolean traverse by tying off one end round a block and body belaying on the other side of the gap.  Everyone got across by the commando lying on the rope technique and stayed dry.  All in all a good end to the technical section of the course. 

Tomorrow is the last day and is focusing upon teaching navigation skills at the mountain leader standard.
