Navigation Course with Helena and Rick

On Saturday I took Helena and Rick out for a day of mountain navigation instruction. The day was a Christmas gift from Helena to Rick so the pressure was on to give them a good day out. Snowdonia put on its finest show and gave us wall to wall sunshine and warm temps - which is maybe not ideal for a nav course (lots of cloud and hill fog is better) but it certainly made for a stunning day out. Snowdonia was quite possible THE place to be. We made our way up to the summit of Cnict looking at various navigation techniques as we went. I also got Helena on a small amount of scrambling ground to try and get her to overcome her fear of steep and rocky ground. Rick and Helena got loads out of the day and didn't bicker too much. Hopefully they haven't got lost on Moel Elio today.

We ended the day in the best possible way - with an Ice Cream from Georgios in llanberis.
