Super Week in the Mountains


Last week I was once again working for Joint Service Mountain Training, here in Snowdonia on a Summer Mountaineering Foundation course. It's not often you get 5 days in the mountains without hardly a drop of rain, especially in November but this week we have enjoyed great weather every day.

Throughout the course we were looking at mountain navigation, route planning, dealing with emergencies and expedition skills. A super keen group, the good weather and some fine mountain walking made for a brilliant week, thanks.
