5 Star Training and an Update

It's been a while since I last updated the blog and in some cases a lot has happened and in other cases not much has been happening. Due to the constant bad weather on the days off work has meant I haven't been out on the rock so much. I did squeeze a trip down to the lakes to Tranearth Mountian Hut for a friends birthday and also graduated from my course in Lochaber.
The past two days I have attented my 5 star white water training with Chris Dickinson. The weather was rubbish which was great for us. On the first day we ran the Pattack which was at a very high flow but Chirs was showing Dave and I the tricks of trade which helpled us to cruise down the river.
The second day we ran the Upper Roy and the Gorge luckily the water level which meant we could run the whole rive appart from the syphone.

This could a substantial problem at higher flows!
