ML Expedition. Day 5 and 6

 The summit of Cnicht (689m)

Our camp site at Llynnau'r Cwn (640m).

The weather was very kind to us on the expedition with only a few bits of cloud around yesterday but by last night the sky had cleared to give us a stunningly clear but cold evening for our night navigation exercise. What made it even better was the stars were really clear with no light pollution which I think everyone agreed was very special.

We started the 2 day trip from Gelli Iago up to Cnicht (689m) and camped at Llynnau'r Cwn with a night navigation around the area and over to Ysafell Wen. After a cold night and a ground frost we made our way back to Gelli Iago via Llyn Llagi under beautiful sunny conditions. The aim of the expedition was to navigate using 1:25,000 maps, map to ground and ground to map interpretation, mico navigation, camping skills, route choice and various other aspects of the ML syllabus as and when required.
