An Evening on Snowdon

I've just finished up the week with Worcester Uni on their Mountain Leader Training Course at Blue Peris Mountain Centre. Yesterday we walked over Yr Aran, looking at navigation on 1:50,000 scale maps, then dropped into Cwm Tregalan to set up camp. We chilled out for a few hours in the afternoon sun before heading up the Watkin Path to Snowdon. We summited at 8pm, cooked some dinner and watched the sun set over Anglesey. It was a little chilly up there due to the NE wind but it was well worth the effort. As darkness approached quickly we dropped back down to Bwlch y Saethau then spent a few hours perfect night navigation techniques.
This morning we walked out, enjoying yet another sunny spring day. I really can't believe the weather we are having!
Best of luck to all the team - I'll see you in a couple of years for assessment!
