I have been climbing at Tremadog with Jamie and Matt today. We climbed 3 routes, Cynychwr VS 4b,4b, Yogi VS 4c,4b and Valeries Rib HS 4b,4b. They have both been climbing before, inside and out, they have also done a few days multi pitch climbing in the past. Today we re-visited runner placements, building belays, tying into belays, clipping runners, route choice and abseiling. The weather was very wet in the mountains and good old faithful Tremadog did its thing and made the sunshine!

I have been very busy the last few weeks working for various outdoor centres in Snowdonia on adventurous activity programmes, working with primary, secondary school children as well as adults. The weather has been mixed, some sun, heavy rain and gales, making for interesting conditions while, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, gorge walking, sea level traversing, coasteering and surfing. I have been working with a secondary school from Somerset for Bryn y Mor. On Wednesday we went to Holy Head mountain on Anglesey and climbed four 2 pitch routes of about VD with Meridith and Shirley. Thursday I was at Tremadog and climbed Scratch VS 4a,4b,4b,4b giving a first experience of multi-pitch climbing for Steven and Charlie. Today myself and Matt took the whole team up the Afon Ddu gorge, which was fairly high from the heavy rain over the last couple of days.
