In order for the ML assessment guys to see another assessor I handed the day over to Glyn for the Mountain day and I worked on the second day of a Walking Group Leader training course. The weather was a lot better today but cold in the wind. We covered navigation, fauna and flora, geology and geography as well as emergency procedures. We went for a walk to the south east of the Pen y Gwryd and up as far as Nant y Llys before turning back to look at some steep ground.
I'm back with the ML assessment tomorrow for a 3 day expedition into the mountains. I hope the weather forecast is wrong and that it stays dry until Friday. ;-(
A bit of a mixed morning this morning with quite a lot of cloud but the forecast was OK so I decided to do a quick jaunt around the Elidir Fawr horseshoe. The weather turned out better than I though as the top of the cloud was just below the summits. I was rewarded with the sun as well as some Brocken Spectres. A spectacular day. I tracked the trip on Endomondo so if you're interested click here. If you would like to see all the photos I took this morning then click here .
A happy team after a busy weekend conducting climbing, abseiling and ropes course assessments. I was working down in West Sussex working for PGL. I had a fantastic welcome at Windmill Hill so a big thank you goes out to the senior team and staff who were super helpful, happy and enthusiastic throughout.
