Okay so we’ve all done work experience at some point - brewing up, data inputting, filing and photocopying… yawn! Well not for Flo. Last week he paid us a visit to do a weeks work placement – which basically involved none of the above and climbing in Scotland with Dave instead.
Here’s a few words and photos from Flo's week…
“Uuuuufffff… One week work experience from school. How about getting some work experience in climbing? But where should I do this? The best would be going climbing with fellow climber Dave MacLeod. So I get on to a plane for Manchester then take a train to Fort William, Scotland.
When I arrived I was met by Dave and before I knew it off we went straight out to do some climbing. The weather had been very cold; so perfect conditions for bouldering hard.
Over 4 days the weather was good, even though we were in Scotland. We went out as often as we could…and I really enjoyed being outside.
I had four amazing days of bouldering with Dave before I headed back to Manchester for 3 days work with the guys at the Mountain Equipment headoffice.”
