Winter Skills Course!
I'm working on a winter skills course for Plas y Brenin this weekend but the conditions are far from perfect for winter skills. We ventured up Pen yr Ole Wen (978m) and Carnedd Dafydd (1044m) but, as you can see from the photos, there isn't much in the way of winter conditions in Snowdonia at the moment. We covered subjects such as navigation, scrambling on rocky ground, mountain safety, route finding, equipment and tried to put it into a winter context. It was a stunning day and the group were very enthusiastic.
