ML Refresher

Yesterday I headed out into the Moelwyns with Chris and Dan for a Mountain Leader refresher day. They had both done their training many years ago and wanted to brush up on there navigation skills before taking their assessment this year. Thankfully the grim weather that came through over night had passed over by mid morning so we had a very pleasant day walking on bearings, practicing pacing and timings and get to grips with navigating on both 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 scale maps. Both Chris and Dan were much more confident with their ability by the end of the day and I wish them the best for their assessment.
