Bouldering in Fontainebleau.

A good dose of sunshine and many lifetime’s worth of boulders to explore in a beautiful woodland setting:

Mountain navigation course in Snowdonia.

Tej and I drove Jodie and Veronika to North Wales for a 2-day navigation course in the mountains. The weather gave us a mixture of snow, rain, sunshine and cloud – a good balance for learning to navigate in poor visibility whilst enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. It was a great weekend! Here’s what Jodie had to say afterwards:

“We really can’t thank you enough for the whole experience – both Veronika and I learned so much, it was exactly what we were looking for and more. It was pretty special wasn’t it! A massive thanks to both you and Tej. I
can’t wait to get back out there and practice everything I’ve learnt now.”

It was soon after this point that the cloud came in, more snow began to fall and we found ourselves in the perfect conditions for practicing navigation using a compass and pacing…
