Winter Mountaineering, Yr Hafod, Snowdonia

19th February 2018

At Yr Hafod in Snowdonia once more for our annual Winter Mountaineering trip. Snow conditions underfoot were pretty thin again this year but with some prior knowledge, all four teams managed to find some good snow to practice their skills - and bag a peak into the bargain

Sunday morning was spent on navigation and rope work in Cwms Idwal and Bochlwyd.
