Ropes course assessments for PGL

I was over in Shropshire over the last 3 days conducting some assessments for a PGL centre. The assessments consisted of zip wire, abseil, climbing and giant swing and as usual I received a very warm welcome from all the staff. :-)

It's still cold up there!

It was pretty cold on the top of Elidir Fawr this morning but the views were stunning when the clouds cleared. The photo's were taken just below the summit.

Light winds at last!!

A gorgeous day and well worth the slog up to Pen y Pass. Back to work now :-(

Another blustery day but my legs couldn't handle another day on the bike so I took the dog for a walk instead. We started for Y Glyn (Lagoons) in Llanberis and then went round Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris via the Dinorwig slate quarries.

Check out the trip here.

No shelter from the wind today.

It was a wet and very windy day today which made the journey to Pantglas along the cycle track (Lon Eifion) hard work but when I turned round at the high point for the return journey it was an absolute breeze (no pun intended!!)

A bit of shelter from the wind

The wind was very strong this morning so I decided that  a good workout up to Dinorwig via Fachwen was the best option rather than fight the wind up to Pen y Pass which was my original plan.

ML Ropework reassessment

I was out in the Llanberis Pass today with Paddy to carry out an ML ropework reassessment. We scrambled up the right hand side of Dinas Cromlech and then came down the climbers descent path. All went well for Paddy and we even made it to the car before the heavy rain arrived.

A damp day at Tremadog

I was over at Tremadog again today with Dan who wanted to improve his multi pitch climbing skills. It was a very damp to start this morning but the drizzle soon stopped and it was drying out nicely by lunch time.

A nice day at Tremadog

I had a great time with a group of youngsters from London today. They were very keen to try some single pitch climbing so we went for a trip up to the Upper Tier of Pant Ifan as the high crags would be a bit cold and snowy at the moment. They had all climbed before on their climbing wall back at their school but they discovered how different climbing on the real stuff is.

In house assessments

It's now the busiest part of the year for me as I'm running a lot of in-house assessments for various organisations and outdoor centres and am spending a lot of time travelling in the car. One of the most positive aspects of this work is meeting up with a load of really keen and enthusiastic individuals who relish working with kids and leading activities. Unfortunately, this has meant that I've missed the fantastic winter conditions here in Snowdonia and it looks like the weather will be changing to warmer conditions of the next week or two. It probably isn't a bad thing as I've some ML summer reassessments to run soon and it would be a little difficult with the mountains as they are!
