Mountain Leader summer training

The last part of the ML course I've been running this week was a 2 day expedition in the hills. It was fortunate that the Moelwynion were clear of snow but our camp at Llynnau'r Cwn was very cold and the lake was frozen by the morning as was the ground underfoot. It was particularly nice to have some dry weather yesterday after such a wet start but we were rewarded with a stunning day today with a beautiful sunrise. Even though we had some cold candidates by the morning I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

ML (Summer!!) Training

I'm running an ML summer training course this week and what a week it's been so far. Day one was a very windy and cold micro navigation day around the Moel Faban area above Bethesda. We did manage to get some shelter from the wind and the impending rain which didn't reach us until about 3 o'clock. Yesterday was a mountain day over on the Glyderau and today was a weather lecture and rope work day which ended up a bit of a washout. We did manage a very quick trip up to the Milestone Buttress to have a closer look at anchors before we beat a retreat for some shelter from the rain, sleet and cold. Looks like it's going to be improving over the next few days - we hope!! :-)

Movember 2012



Hi folks. Movember has arrived and I've decided to go for some top lip action in support of a worthy cause - please donate if you can.

Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon (1085m) from the flanks of Moel Eilio (726m)

Looking back at Moel Eilio and point 629m

I managed to get out into the hills the other day to take advantage of the nice weather before the nasty stuff came in. The ground was frozen in places on north facing slopes but not much up to about 700m but this is, unfortunately, useless now as the freezing level has shot up about the tops. I'm sure the cold weather will be back soon. :-)
