ML Training, Day 3

Today I took the candidates to the flanks of Tryfan to look at security on steep ground and ropework. The idea was to concentrate on route choice, spotting and verbal guidance as options before the rope came out. We then looked at lowering on a rope, confidence roping and personal abseiling. All in all a busy day with wet greasy rocks and grass making it all the more realistic. Wet and windy today, out on expedition tomorrow and Wednesday so hopefully will be a bit nicer.
