I think you've mostly covered it. Perhaps you could add a little alpine climbing, or even a refresher for rope work in the high mountains. For glacier travel when you need to climb or abseil, this would be good.

@tgovebaker Hi Tom,

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. I was away for a few days and have been playing catch-up since.

We are actually in the process of organising a private course for someone along exactly those lines. If there is enough interest I could put such a course on the calendar for the end of August (around the 27/28th).

If I get anyone else asking I'll make it happen. We've done it in the past and it was a lot of fun.

Thanks, Dave. Let me connect with a couple of folks. I'm sure we could drum up sufficient interest. But that timing sounds right.
