Moel Eilio

It was a much colder and windier day today but it was well worth the effort to make an ascent of Moel Eilio nonetheless and was rewarded with some fantastic views. I didn't have much time to spare today so I made a quick ascent of the north ridge and then down the NE ridge.

Cloud Inversion

What a fantastic day. It started out as a dreary, damp day but I had an idea that with a high pressure building the cloud may be very low and thin so I decided to venture up Carnedd y Filiast (821m) and then on to Elidir Fawr (923m). As you can see from the photos it was a gorgeous day up there with loads of Brocken Spectres and fantastic views. More photo's are available of the day here





 

NICAS Induction

I was over at the Beacon Climbing Centre last night to run a NICAS Induction for 5 local instructors. We covered subjects such as the syllabus from 1-5, the syllabus in detail from 1-3, harnesses, tying in and belaying as well as bit of coaching of movement skills.

Thanks to Rich, Pete, Hamish, Ross and Rich for making the session a success.

Assessments

I thought I'd be able to post daily logs of stories but I'm afraid the network couldn't cope with even the simplest of tasks - so much for 3G!!

I've been conducting assessments all week on climbing walls, abseil towers and high ropes courses for PGL at one of their biggest activity centre based in Shropshire. I had a really warm welcome and they really kept me busy all week. Here are some photos of the staff that I assessed during the week.

ML Training (summer!)

I was co-directing a modular Mountain Leader Award training course for Liverpool John Moores University based at Blue Peris. The first half of the course was directed by Gareth Davies from Dringo Adventures and I ran the second 3 days which finished with an over night camp in the Moelwynion yesterday. The group were super keen but unfortunately the weather proved to be a challenge with mega cold conditions and snow down to about 500m. I must say that the mountains looked absolutely stunning and I think the group enjoyed the experience of dealing with the cold and hacking through 4 inches of ice to get at the water in Llynnau Cerrig y Myllt. The pictures are courtesy of Luca Miceli who was observing the course as a part of his course. Thanks Luca
