Helping on an ML Training
Today I was scheduled on to take a group from a Mountain Leader Training course to some steep ground to look at rope work in the ML context. Most of the group haven't used a rope in the hills so we had plenty to cover. We looked carefully at anchor selection, how to attach ourselves to them and safeguard others over different terrain. We also looked at confidence roping, lowering and abseiling. We did all of this up and around the PYG Track which leads up too Snowdon from Pen y Pass. Was a chilly and windy day.
