Location South Wales, Dan Yr Ogof camp. Weather: mixed sunshine and some hail showers, nice rainbows, then rain and low cloud. On day one 7 groups undertook more than 8 hours of navigation and safety training around the limestone scenery below the ridge of Fan Hir on the Black Mountain. Spot the shake holes! Then their 2 day independent trek took them over the main 600 metre+ ridge and then down to Cross Inn. Final day saw a climb up “the nose” and thence along a valley bench in cloud: tricky navigation at times. All groups performed really well and staff were impressed with the spirited and cheerful team work that held up despite some miserable weather: we were pleased to see happy faces emerging on the bus home. Well done folks! I’ll confirm qualifying expedition dates 2012 v soon but I am hoping to offer Easter AND August (clash with biology ft), but that’ll be all for 2012: details next half term.
