Mountain Leader Training Course

This week I'm at Blue Peris Mountain Centre in Snowdonia working on a Mountain Leader Training course. Today I took my team out to Cwm Idwal to look at emergency ropework. We scrambled around on the rocks of Clogwyn y Tarw looking at situations that might occur when leading a group in the mountains that can be resolved with use of a rope. After some heavy showers in the morning the sun came out to dry us out and we enjoyed practicing a variety of abseiling methods. Here's a couple of photos from the past two days.
