An Evening at St Albans Head

Our flank team at St Albans invited us to a joint training session last week, so the team headed to Worth to join them and from there, out to St Albans head itself.

It's always good to train in unfamiliar locations and the cliff at St Albans offers an opportunity to run the set up over a double ledge - ie the technician decends from the operating level down the cliff face to the next ledge below, before walking out to the edge of that and descending over the edge of that too.
The view going over the second ledge

On a glorious summer evening, we managed to get 6 technicians over the cliff whilst the rest of the teams took it in turns to operate the main and safety lines and the tugger recovery system.
Assisted descent (the second, untrained person could be a paramedic or police officer etc)

Policy is to task two teams to a rope rescue, and so it makes sense for flank teams to train together, and our thanks to the team at St Albans for the invite.
Some different scenery at St Albans!
