We had another Guides training day in the Lake District last Friday, on Decision Making and Risk Management in Hazardous Environments. One interesting topic that’s certainly worth reading more about if you’re heading into the hills this winter is Werner Münter’s 3×3 Avalanche Assessment Process and Reduction Method. You can download a PDF of the process here 3×3 Avalanche Assessment Process & Reduction Method and read the Avalanche Rescue Commission report here Avalanche Rescue Commission Report 2002

We held a Guides training day (CPD) on short roping in Langdale today. Here’s a “top tip” for tying on the middle man. I usually use a back threaded overhand knot on a short bight of rope these days, in line with current standard practice. However, I like the method shown in the photo using a bowline in place of the back threaded overhand knot. The bight itself is made using an overhand as per normal. The free end of the bight that is left after tying in with the bowline is kept really short, and clipped in with krab so it can’t pull through.
In addition to my Journal entries I post photos to my Facebook Page whenever I go out on the hill.
