Edale MRT Mountain Skills III...

It's been another chilly day in Snowdonia today with a fairly low freezing level.  The forecast snow sadly failed to arrive resulting in another visit to the "white room" of Cwm Lloer.

Trev Lawton, Paul Bartram and myself decided to make an ascent of the Cwm Headwall (I) before climbing a couple of pitches up steeper ground to the summit ridge of Pen Yr Ole Wen.

This was the culmination of a few days winter skills and mountaineering training for Edale Mountain Rescue Team.  Over on the other side of the valley it looked like Idwal Stream was forming ice although it's probably not climbable just yet!  Fingers crossed some proper winter climbing conditions will emerge shortly, the turf is well frozen and all that will be required is a brief snowfall...
