Well, I have had a busy four days working for Andy Newton on an ML Assessment for the Christian Mountain Centre based down near Harlech. Having never ventured south of the OL17 Ordinate Survey map of Northern Snowdonia, I have to say that the area when we drove through it look lovely, and much quieter than the Snowdon Area. There were even a few crags that I might pay a visit to.
I spent Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday on the Moelwyns trying to avoid the high winds brought by Hurricane Katia, which we succeeded in. I even managed to get onto OL18, and explore the area around Creoso and Rosyth Slate mines. Its a great area for combining walking with a bit of industrial archiology. The group did well over the three days, showin gthat they can survive over and extended period in the hills, as well as navigate and manage a group in such terrain.
Today I was in Ogwen doing the Mountain Day, and the pair I was with managed to get me safely up Seniors and Down Y Gribin. We even threw in a littel ropework. I was looking forward to a few days off, but I am back to the grind stone on Saturday with a trouble shooting techniques course for Plas Y brenin at the weekend.
