We had a fantastic time in the gorge with out university group yesterday. The group really came into their own, overcoming all the challenges that our instructors set them. They had a great time last night visiting some of the local nightlife for food and a few beverages in Llanberis. Looking forward to a fantastic day on Padarn today canoeing.
Walking across the 'Prince' waterfall
University showers are improving..

What a fantastic day today turned out to be! Today we had four groups exploring the mountains of Snowdonia, and one group who braved the underground caverns of Rhiwbach mine. The walkers were graced with some beautiful scenes, and even managed to earn themselves a sunny afternoon! We hope for similar weather for the rest of the week, and are extra excited for more adventures with our group!

It was a wet and windy day here in Snowdonia today. Despite the bad weather all our teams made plans packed their equipment and went for a fun day in the gorge and down the mine.

There was lots of water flowing down the gorge but the teams worked together to make progress towards the top.

It's been quite a while since our last post. We've had quite a few problems, ranging from lack of internet, through to losing the password for the blog!
Finally, we seem to have sorted both and hopefully we'll be able to give you a more regular insight into our daily shenanigans!
We've been trying to keep this weeks group well into the "stretch zone" by providing them with a lot of very adventurous activities.We always aim to give them as much adventure as we can! As you can see........
