PEER BELAYING WORKSHOP (What the inspectors saw - peer belaying, lowering and other rope related near misses) By Tim Morton AALS observes around 750 activity sessions every year, many of them involving roped activities. This practical workshop will share some of the not so good practice seen and guide a discussion on how the common issues might be addressed either by those delivering training and assessment, those operating as internal or external technical advisors and of course those delivering roped activities. This is a half day workshop running from 1pm until 4pm. Tim Morton has been involved in adventure activities for more than 30 years, he's an MIC and a former SPA provider. As the deputy head of inspection at AALS he has been involved in the investigation of a number of incidents/accidents on climbing walls and high ropes courses (13 in the last five years!). Tim has worked and played on crags and mountains across Europe, Africa and South America.
