We managed to look at a variety of skills, but spent most of the morning examining direct and indirect belays and even managed a bit of confidence roping in the early afternoon. All these skills are a key part of being a Summer Mountain Leader and for working on North Wales major peaks.
We all managed to survive the weather in the morning ( it was far worse than the pictures portray it!) Being a hardy mountaineer is key to working in North Wales.
