Following the Medical training we went to Derbyshire for some of our field training which involved using all the equipment that we will be using in Antarctica like a Pyramid tent and the cooking stove, which are still the same as Captain Scott used on his ill fated expedition to the South Pole. Every day we spent learning climbing techniques from abseiling to jumaring back up a rope, Z-pulleys which are used to rescue some one from a crevasse( see more of my photos opposite). What a great laugh we had. I can't wait till I will be climbing in crevasses like in the pic above.
