A nicer day today.

Well, it's stopped raining at last and the river levels are dropping as you can see from the photo which was taken from the same place as yesterday. Quite a bit of difference I'm sure you'll agree.

It's raining!!

As you can see from the photo taken late this morning above Llanberis it's been raining a lot over the last few days. I must say though it's really nice being out in big weather like this and being witness to nature doing it's thing. 

Mountain Leader Assessment

I was directing and working on a Mountain Leader summer assessment for Blue Peris Mountain Centre over the last 5 days. I had 4 candidates to assess but the weather conspired to give us a really hard time during the 3 day expedition with strong winds and torrential rain we also had a few hail storms early in the week as well. Well done to Ash, Dave, Lewis and Liam for putting up with the weather and me for giving them a heard time over the last 5 days.

Moel Eilio to Moel Cynghorion

I had a lovely walk today along the beautiful ridge walk from Moel Eilio (726m) to Moel Cynghorion (674m). The day was dry but it was very windy on exposed slopes. For more details click here  . The photo was taken from Foel Goch (605m) looking towards Moel Cynghorion and Snowdon.

Ropes assessments

I've been on the road again recently carrying out assessments of staff at PGL centres. The in-house assessments have included high ropes course elements, climbing walls and abseil towers.
