Moel Cynghorion

We had a lovely day today on Moel Cynghorion with no rain and light winds. We covered navigation skills on Moel Cynghorion (674m) and then travelled over to Llyn Du'r Arddu to practice some rope skills for mountain leaders.

Carnedd y Filiast to Pen y Pass

I was out and about again over the last couple of days with staff from a private school but this time from London. We had a bit of a long adventure yesterday with a journey from above Deiniolen to Pen y Pass. We took in the following summits along the way: Carnedd y Filiast (821m), Elidir Fawr (923m), Foel Goch (831m), Y Garn (947m) and a very cold and misty Glyder Fawr (1001m) before dropping down to Pen y Pass.

Today was shorter day with an ascent of Moel Cynghorion (674m) to practice navigation skills and then over to Llyn Du'r Arddu to discuss and practice ML rope work. Link to more photos here.

Carneddau (overnight)

I was out in the Carneddau for a couple of days with staff from a private school based in Surrey. The whole idea was to give them an experience in the mountains and to push some of the staff a little bit, to teach them some new skills and to keep them up to date with current thinking within the outdoor industry. The plan was to do a mountain day on the Sunday and then spend the night at the bothy near Llyn Dulyn with some night navigation thrown in to-boot . The first half of Monday would be looking at ropework within the context of the Mountain Leader scheme and then the afternoon would be spent navigating back to the vehicle. All went according to plan and I think everyone enjoyed the experience.

The weather was perfect for the navigation on the first day with very poor visibility for most of the day but we were rewarded with some spectacular views in the afternoon. We bagged Carnedd Llewelyn (1064m), Foel Grach (976m), Carnedd Gwenllian (926m) and Foel Fras (942m) before making our way down to the bothy. It was very warm for the time of the year with very little snow left.

The next day was dry with lighter winds.
