Well I have work on two different Mountain Leader Summer Training course this weekend. One for Plas Y Brenin and the other for Andy Newton. Whilst i did the ropework and the two day expedition for Plas y Brenin earlier in the week.
Today I did the ‘Mountain Day’, which was rather challenging having learnt that it is winter on the tops, so was restricted to staying under about 700 meters to keep out of the ice line. Also I like to add a lot of environmental and other aspects to this day. Given that most flowers aren’t flowering and the fact that it snowed just after we left the car, hiding many of the plants I can identify from leaves alone, not to mention lichens and mosses. (see here for previous ML environment days there are links to photos of plants etc...)
Anyhow we had a good day out despite the weather you can see that it cleared up, and managed to cover some leadership scenarios in the evening.
I have attached some photos from the week. If you have done a Mountain Leader Training Course and would like a refresher in any of the skill from the course then you can do so through Snowdonia Mountain Guides.
