Snow on the mountains

I have been running an advanced scrambling course today with Laurence and John. It has been dry, bright and sunny all day but as I drove home down the Ogwen Valley it was hammering with rain, the temperature had dropped and there was a nice dusting of snow above about 800m with snow still falling. We climbed the East Ridge of Y Garn (2/3) which gave a great day out looking at the skills involved in using a rope for protection on this type of ground and some stunning views in crystal clear skies. We certainly got the timing right with the weather!
