Mountaincraft Expedition

The last two days have been spent on the Carneddau for the wild camping element of our mountain craft course. Yesterday we walked into Cwm Eigiau and then up onto Carnedd Llewellyn (Snowdonia's second highest peak) before navving in thick cloud across the summit ridge and down towards Dylan Bothy. We used the bothy for shelter whilst we enjoyed a sociable evening meal and then moved away to camp wild in the mountains. Our night navigation exercise was a true test of skills since the cloud was really dense and visibility was limited to only a couple of metres but the boys and girls did a great job of circumnavigating us back to our tents. Its been a great week in lovely company, thanks to all!
