Instructor Training Month Coming To An End…

Another successful Instructor Training Month is drawing to a close. All that’s left is for Pete and Antonia to complete the official Mountain Leader training that we have starting on Monday with another 4 people joining us on the course. The Single Pitch Award training was completed last weekend.

We’ve got tons done on the course this month from single pitch cragging on Holyhead Mountain to climbing classics on Dinas Cromlech and from micro nav in the Carneddau to mountain scrambling on Tryfan. The focus of our course is not only to pass on lots of new skills but also to have a great time on the crag and in the mountains and hopefully we’ve achieved that again – lots of laughs, smiling photos and growing log book entries would suggest we’ve got it right. Low ratios and program flexibility mean we can really make the most of the month and focus our attentions where they are needed.

The weather has been super kind to us, with only this last week being a little mixed, which always makes life a little easier, but we had to cope with some pretty grim wind and rain on our overnighter in the Glyders this week which always brings up a few learning points and highlights any kit weaknesses.

If you’d like to join us on the next course it starts on the 2nd March 2015, please look around the site for more info and see loads of photos on our Facebook page.
