Snowdon (1085m). No view.

Mynydd Mawr and Moel Cynghorion from Allt Goch

Sun! just.

With a high pressure system dominating the UK I thought I'd take a trip up Snowdon to see if I could get some nice photos of some cloud inversions but, unfortunately, the cloud was too thick on the summit and the winds was too strong. The train's still running to the summit and I think Hafan Eryri is open as well so let's hope for a busy half term next week. It's forecast to turn very cold by Friday so we may see some snow on the hills by the weekend. 

I was stopped at the start of the Llanberis path by 3 chaps in a car asking if they were on the correct road to the tea rooms on the summit!! I had to explain to them that it wasn't possible to drive to the summit and that it was 900m higher up in the mist.  I was also amazed that ill equipped people were starting their journey to the summit as late as lunch time. I think we need some information boards with some strong words of advice at the start of all the paths up Snowdon. For details of the route click here.

Elidir Fawr (923m)

The summit of Elidir Fawr

Looking down to Llyn Padarn from below the summit of Elidir Fach

Not much to see today with damp mist for much of the way and gusty winds but it cleared as I descended Elidir Fach to give some fantastic views. My journey this morning was a very quick trip up Carnedd y Filiast (821m), Mynydd Perfedd (812m), Elidir Fawr (923m) and Elidir Fach (795m). I tracked the route on Edomondo click here if you're interested.

ML Assessment

I had an awesome day in Cwm Idwal today. I was working on an ML Assessment for Blue Peris and as it was a mountain day elected to go the easy way up the NW Face Route onto Seniors Ridge and then to the summit of Glyder Fawr (1001m). We descended via the Gribin Ridge but the highlight of the day was the scenery and the Broken Spectres we had on the way up Seniors Ridge.

Tremadog

I've had a very busy week this week with various projects and work down in London but it all culminated in having a lovely day at sunny Tremadog today. I had Bill and Nick for company today from a mountaineering club based in the Midlands with a task of developing their improvised rescue skills as well as covering stance management. Both Bill and Nick were very happy to consolidate old skills as well as learning new ones. We climbed Oberon and Yogi and looked at skills such as assisted/unassisted hoists, abseiling and escaping the system with anchor in reach as well as out of reach. A good day was had by all.
