I was running an SPA assessment over the last couple of days. I had three candidates - Anthony, Jason and Alex. We travelled over the Holyhead Mountain on Wednesday so that we could cover personal skills such as leading Severe graded climbs, placing protecting, belaying, joining anchors as well as personal abseiling. Thursday was over at the Upper Tier of Pant Ifan to look at group management skills including bottom top roping, problem solving and group abseiling. It was great to be out in such good weather despite the weather forecast being bad at the start of the week. It was absolutely cracking on both days and although it was busy on the crags of Holyhead Mountain we had the Upper Tier to our selves all day which was very unusual.
Off to the Alps now so see you in a couple of weeks.
