AMI Workshop for MIA Trainees

I have been working for the AMI again today on another workshop for MIA trainees. Today the ratio was 1:2 and we were looking at improvised rescue and problem solving for multi pitch climbing with 2 clients. We looked at simple problems such as a stuck second, a jammed belay plate etc and moved onto more complex problems involving escaping the system, abseil pick ups and eventually a  couple of multi pitch crag evacuations with an unconscious second on a traverse pitch several pitches up from the ground using just a simple climbing rack and standard ropes. The boys did well and the weather stayed mostly dry and so a good day was had by all.
