Mountain Leader Training - Plas y Brenin

Mountain Leader Training - Plas y Brenin
4th - 8th October 2010

Spent last week at Plas y Brenin (National Mountain Centre) in Snowdonia where I completed the Mountain Leader (summer) training course. Superb venue, magnificent mountains, great food/accommodation and very knowledgeable and experienced instructors. I learnt a great deal, which I'll now put into practice before going back to Plas y Brenin for my ML assessment in spring next year.

Mountain days included: Moel Siabod, Glyder Fawr (via Y Gribin) and a 2-day expedition and wild camp across the Moelwyns.
