Expedition Medicine

Today was spent working with a group of medics on Expedition Medicine's Lake District course. The weather was almost spring like and we spent the afternoon in t-shirts on the fells above the Derwent Water Youth Hostel looking at navigation, evacuation procedures and steep ground ropework. A very interesting evening lecture was given by Chris Imray, part of the Cauldwell Xtreme Everest Expedition and the key contact for the UK Frostbite Advice Service.
