Snowdon

Well, the weather forecast didn't work out quite the way it was supposed to. It was a pretty horrible day on Snowdon with heavy rain and a very autumnal feel in the air. I was working for the Adventure Activity Licensing Authority today checking out a provider who had a group of school kids on Snowdon. It was nice to be out today regardless of the weather as I've been writing reports and decorating for most of the week. The route took me and Barti up the PYG track and down the Miners. At least the weather kept the crowds at bay and it was a very pleasant walk back to Pen y Pass before my 4 hour parking ticket expired. £5 for 4 hours and £10 for the day! Daylight robbery...........

AMI Trainee workshop - Ireland

I was working over in Ireland again this weekend. The workshop was based at the IMC club hut at Glendalough in the Wicklow Mountains. I had 4 trainee members who were keen to cover the many issues surrounding short roping in ascent and descent. We elected to go over to Glenmalure to find some suitably steep ground. The photo is of Angela, Mark, Rob and Ciaran.

Outdoor Partnership - Plas y Brenin

I was working for the Outdoor Partnership yesterday at Plas y Brenin running workshops for the open day to celebrate 5 years of being in existence. I was running a navigation workshop for mountain leaders in the heavy morning showers and then a ropework for mountain leaders in the afternoon which was mostly dry but warm. It was a fantastic turn out with more than 130 people turning up from clubs and organisation across North Wales.

AMI Teaching Climbing Day

I was working for the Association of Mountaineering Instructors again today mentoring trainee members who are looking at doing their MIA assessment. We had a day on the Milestone Buttress today looking at the teaching of climbing. Joe was joined by Mike today to look at the practical aspects and progression of teaching students the art of climbing. The weather was rather dark and wet by the end of the morning but cleared to give a warm (ish) afternoon with a strong wind.

AMI Trainee workshop

I was working for the Association of Mountaineering Instructors today looking at teaching lead climbing and climbing in parallel. I was joined for the day by John and Joe and we managed to dodge most of the showers but what little rain we had wasn't enough to wet us. All in all a successful and dry day with Xmas Curry and the first pitch of Cnychwr and the second pitch of Rio being climbed as a part of the day.
