Security on steep ground and Ropework


We carried on with the Mock ML Assessment weekend today and looked at security on steep ground and ropework. We decided to work in Cwm Idwal and went up the gully beyond Homicide Wall and up on to Seniors Ridge and then down the obvious gully to the base of Suicide Wall. We then went down to Clogwyn y Tarw to do some ropework up the right hand side. The weather was damp for most of the day but not enough to get us too wet but this produced the longest lasting rainbow I have ever seen over Llyn Idwal (it must have lasted 2 hours) and then by 2 o'clock the weather changed to be more persistent rain and really strong winds.


The photo is of me on Seniors Ridge (thanks for the photo Matt).

Mock ML Assessment


We had a fresh and breezy day up in the Moelwynion today covering navigation skills and avoiding bogs! We had a brief period of rain as a shower passed but other than that we had a dry day. Visibility was very good (unfortunately!) so we covered micro navigation and relocation skills. The photo is of (from left to right) Paul, John, Neil, Matt and Iestyn.

Tremadog


Had a hot sunny day at Tremadog today with Dei and Dominic. We climbed Cnychwr (S) and Oberon (S) with a drink and a chip butty in between. The picture is of Dominic on the second pitch of Oberon.

First Aid


I renewed my First Aid Certificate this weekend with Active First Aid Training. The course was run by Kath Wills at Canolfan Deilen Las (Craflwyn near Beddgelert) over two days. The course was very informative, practical and above all enjoyable. If anyone is interested in First Aid or needs to re validate their existing certificate I would certainly recommend one of Kath's courses. For more info you can visit her web site at Active First Aid Training .

AMI Trainee Workshop


It was a bit damp this morning but it turned out to be a lovely day and everyone seemed to get what they wanted out of the day. We started out by following the slabs above Homicide Wall and progressed up to Cwm Cneifion to do the Cneifion Arete we then descended the Gribin and Clogwyn y Tarw down to the Cwm Idwal path.

AMI Trainee Workshop


I was surprised how quiet it was at Tremadog today being that it was a Saturday in August and a good weather forecast. Even though the forecast was good for today I was disappointed to find it raining from the Pen y Gwryd down to Beddgelert but by the time we got to Eric's Cafe it was looking a lot more promising and the sun came out by lunch time.

I was running an open workshop for 5 trainee members of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors today. The consensus what that teaching multi pitch climbing and short roping would be in order so it was Tremadog today and the plan is to go to Cwm Idwal tomorrow.

SPA Mock Assessment


I was working for the Outdoor Partnership again this weekend. I had one client on Saturday, we visited Pont y Gromlech in the morning and Lion Rock in the afternoon. Sunday was over at Willie's Crag in Ogwen (Photo) with two clients. The weather was great apart from some drizzle on Sunday afternoon which seemed to kick off the midges with a vengeance.
