Mountain Skills Weekend

Day 2, after a brief chat, we headed up Crimpiau and over to Creigiau Gleision. An excellent area to practice navigation and look at how to read the ground and relate it to the map (and vice versa). It also has some of the best views of the larger Snowdonia peaks. We managed to do plenty of navigation legs - making use of some of the ideas learnt from the previous day. We also discussed what to do in an emergency, how to call out Mountain Rescue, emergency kit and how to use a group shelter.

A fine couple of days in the hills with a really keen team - thanks to Liam, Gemma, Lara, Gareth and Emlyn for joining me.

Mountain Skills courses will be running throughout 2017 - check out the course dates for details.
