ML Training. Day 3
What a contrast from the last couple of days of pretty damp and dreary weather. We had another mountain day planned for today so that we could consolidate the skills we covered yesterday and to look at security on steep terrain within the ML syllabus. We headed into Cwm Idwal this morning with a showery and cold forecast with a plan of going up the NW Face Route onto Seniors Ridge and then to the summit of Glyder Fawr (1001m). The plan worked perfectly and the weather was very kind to us - so much so that we stayed dry all day with the odd shower of light hail on the summit. The winds were light with the freezing level just about on the summit, we even had some sun to contend with. The group were very eager to learn and were enthusiastic throughout the day so we changed the plan a bit and decided to make a descent of Y Gribin to complete a perfect day.
