17th and 18th December, North Wales
Based in North Wales for the last two days running a scrambling course for Matthew and Andrew. Apart from the odd heavy sleet/snow/hail shower on Saturday we chose to operate below the snow line at venues on/around Tryfan Bach and The Pinnacle Face of Pen yr Ole Wen. The guys coped admirably with the weather, which allowed us to cover lots of ropework in a scrambling/easy climbing context including traverses and descending/escaping from scrambles.
Snow line at circa 400m when we left, with a lot of fresh snow having fallen on Saturday and overnight in to Sunday on a North-west/North wind. Freezing level seemed higher than forecast and reports of turf not being frozen higher up. I’ll try and post some photos on my return to Scotland.
