Winter Mountaineering in Snowdonia

Today Danny and Rob wanted a half day looking at the ropework involved to go out winter mountaineering for themselves. We headed down the Llanberis Pass and used the mixed ground above Bens Bunkhouse to look at tieing in, taking coils, building simple single point belays and body belays. The ground was frozen even at this low altitude and there was ice in the watercourses. It was also a beautiful sunny morning and the view up the Pass was stunning.
