The instructor training month is into it’s second week and we’ve stayed dry everyday so far…!
We’ve been climbing on Idwal Slabs, Tryfan Bach, Lion Rock, Union Rock and Bus Stop Quarry. Lot’s more planned for this week including Holyhead Mountain, Tremadog, Llanberis Pass and a technique session at the Beacon followed by some bouldering outside.
Our instructor training month is slightly different to most traditional courses, we operate on low ratios so we can tailor what we do to our clients needs. This means we’re out climbing quality routes and logging quality mountain days learning lots on the way. Later on in the course there is a Single Pitch Award training course and a Mountain Leader training course.
I also had a client who wanted to experience a great mountain route so we decided on doing Grooved Arete, a classic V Diff on Tryfan. We had a great day on what is an outstanding route, finished off with a pint in the Tyn y Coed – not many better days than that!
