A wet and windy time in the hills

Spent the last couple of days in the northern half of the Carneddau with a group of D of E staff. Seems that we had the better weather (compared to the rest of Snowdonia) but still had a very wet and extremely windy couple of days. We mostly worked on navigation and brushed up on group skills, rope work as well as night navigation. Had a very pleasant time at Dulyn bothy but was very disappointed to find that previous visitors had left it in a sorry state so we did what we could to tidy up and carry out what rubbish we could. The wind had damaged a part of the roof and was letting in water (will let the MBA know asap). I just wish people would respect these very special places. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Above is a photo of the team in the summit cairn of Drum. Hwyl am y tro. Berwyn
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all and lets hope for some nice weather. Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i chi gyd. Hwyl Berwyn
