ML Training Expedition

For the last two days of our ML Training course we have been on a mini expedition, wild camping in the Carneddau. We started from Ogwen Cottage and enjoyed a circular route that saw us camping high in the mountains behind Carnedd Llewelyn. We had the full variety of weather but spent most of the time in thick cloud which was ideal for the navigation skills. There was snow on the tops and our night nav was done entirely in thick cloud and snow. We woke up to warm sunshine this morning which turned to heavy snow by about 9:00am! We were down for lunch and spent this afternoon doing a river crossing and then individual debriefs. A great couple of days bringing an end to a great week - thanks boys!

The boy did well, I have given him some homework to keep him going in the right direction though! ;-)
