Weekend of climbing and trekking in Wales

By Unknown, on Monday 9th June 2014. Categorised in Army.
The view from the (very very windy) top
This weekend a group of us went up to North Wales on Friday evening to go climbing and trekking. We split into two groups so that one group would climb on the first day and walk on the second and visa versa for the second group. Unfortunately for our group the weather was too bad for us to climb outside on Saturday, so we went to the Indy climbing wall in Llanfairpwllgwyngyll (full place name is: llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - that's crazily long! )

Longest place name in Europe

On the second day, Sunday we went walking and climbed Tryfan, we only had half a day to do this, and we covered some serious contours, and a 700m climb.

This was also the first adventurous training trip that I had organised, I was so worried that something would go wrong, but other than a few people dropping out last minute (probably after they'd seen the forecast), everything went very smoothly.
