Event description
Join Mike Raine and learn the best ways to lead the north ridge of Tryfan

About this event

Spend a day on Tryfan with Mike Raine, mountaineering instructor of 35 years and author of Nature of Snowdonia, discussing how Mountain Leaders can work with groups on the classic north Ridge scramble and remain within the scope of the award and your experience.

The north ridge of Tryfan is one of our best known and loved mountain routes, but it does have its ‘traps’. I know myself it took several ascents before I managed to go the same way twice! Come and join me and fast forward your experience by taking the benefit of mine. This is not a ropework refresher and we will be exploring one or two of the variants, particularly around the forbidding north tower, looking for the best route at grade one. The idea of the workshop is to look at route choice, decision making, group sizes, personal familiarisation, assessing your group and relevant environment topics, including navigating by geology!

This workshop is perfect for qualified (rather than trainee) mountain leaders who want to work on Tryfan and would like to develop their own understanding of scrambling ground in relation to the Mountain leader scheme. The workshop will qualify for one Mountain Training Association CPD point.

EQUIPMENT/KIT REQUIRED

Personal hill kit, including packed lunch.
