Greenland recce training

Posted by on Apr 7, 2016

A rather windy day in the Peak District saw BPE running a technical training session about all things ropes and rescue last weekend.

The famous gritstone crag of Stanage played host as a venue with it’s back drop of beautiful rolling hillsides and big fluffy clouds rolling by, all preceded by a sumptuous breakfast at a local hostelry, the Cheshire Cheese in Hope, highly recommended for their great food and beers!

An interesting and fun day learning the skills needed to complete a recce at a new venue in Greenland for a 2017 trip…
