ML (Summer!!) Training at Blue Peris
Well, the Mountain Leader Training course came to an end with a lot of snow and quite extreme conditions. The last couple of days were challenging due to the snow but we managed to do what we needed and only the last day was effected by the weather. The heavy snow resulted in us having to walk down to Lion Rock from Blue Peris (a distance of about 2 miles) to do some ML ropework but by midday we had to except defeat and retreat back to the centre due to strong winds and snow. All in all I think it was a successful course despite the weather and everyone seemed to go home happy.
Conditions are looking good for some more good winter climbing conditions, a bit of a thaw would be great in order to consolidate the new snow and generate some ice. Watch this space.
Hwyl am y tro (bye for now)
