Busy Week for Snowdonia Mountain Guides

So this week I have been really busy with Snowdonia Mountain Guides. Most of the week I have been involved in delivering a Rapid Trad Climbing course for 6 people. This was very similar to many of our existing Intro To Trad or Lead Climbing Coaching courses but specially tailored to the specific needs of the group I was working with.

We had them lead climbing on day two as they have all had some climbing experience. We visited Lion Rock, Tremadog, Tryfan Bach, Castle Helen and then to finish we did a bit of sports climbing at Castle Inn. The guys climbed up to 6a on Sport and VS on trad.


On the Thursday though I had to step out from this course for a day, and after seeing them descend safely into Castell Helen, I had to reluctantly leave them to it with my team of instructors and return to Llanberis.

In Llanberis I had a big group of Charity walkers from Nando’s Management Team who wanted to climb Snowdon. I got there in time to meet another team of great instructors who were ready to represent Snowdonia Mountain Guides to lead this group of 37 amazing guys up ‘The Mountain’. Again these guy did an amazing job at leading this charity walk up snowdon. With the team reporting that they had an awesome time.

In total I employed 7 instructors this week, hopefully a sign of things to come as I start to develop Snowdonia Mountain Guides further.
