Navigation & Scrambling 5 day course in Snowdonia

Today was the first day of my five day navigation and scrambling course here in Snowdonia. I have been joined for the first two days by Kate, Martin, Jon, Ward, Marcos and Erik, the latter four are staying for the whole week and the latter three have travelled all the way from Holland for the course. We went up the Watkin Path on Snowdon and looked at the fundamental skills of mountain navigation and set out a structure for successful navigation on our hills and mountains. It stayed warm and dry all day and the pools were very tempting on the way down for an afternoon dip - tea and cakes won in the end though!
