16/1/09 A Breezy Day on Cnicht

Day One. I had a day in the Moelwynion today running a staff training day with staff from Richmond DofE and Hampton School. The weather forecast was foul but it ended up quite nice except for the wind which was gusting heavily at times. We split the teams in two with George Manley working with one half and myself working with the other half. Managed to do some micro navigation and some night navigation with a quick trip up Cnicht.

Day Two. More of the same today plus some ML ropework for George and I had an ML reassessment to carry out (Mark passed). We went on to the Rhyd Ddu side of Snowdon and did some more navigation. The weather was perfect for poor visibility navigation later on in the day with the forecasted rain and low cloud arriving around lunch time. George took my team in the afternoon to do some ML ropework whilst I took Mark away to carry out an ML reassessment which was wild, wet and windy. We all got back down to Rhyd Ddu for about 7pm and didn't surprisingly we didn't see another soul all day.
