Great days out on Snowdon

I've had 5 fantastic days working with the MoD, training up cadets in mountain walking skills. The team where great - very enthusiastic and picked up new skills very quickly. The week culminated in a 2 night expedition around Snowdon - taking in Liwedd, Snowdon and Garnedd Ugain. I think many of the group were surprised by the ruggedness of the terrain - a real eye opener.

We had the misfortune of being on Snowdon on Saturday - the first day the new cafe has been open - hence it was bedlam up there. Thankfully after the summit we got off the main tracks and were able to enjoy the peace of the mountains again!

The summit building cost £8million and is a year overdue - is it worth it? You'll just have to get up there and make your mind up for yourself!
