Due to the interest expressed in our blog?I have decided to run another Solo-Mountaineering course in Snowdonia, Wales this winter.There are only three places available and the course will last for one week at a cost of £300 per person.(A second course will be added if this course is fully booked!)
Students route-finding on East Ridge,Yr Garn .
The course is very "low key" and relaxed on a student ratio of 3 to 1 per- Instructor, as a great deal of technical info has to be imparted.This course is for experienced mountaineers only who are comfortable climbing at VS,and who wish to learn self-belay,solo-route finding,micro-nav,and bivvying techniques.The minimum age limit is 21yrs with no upper age limit. 
Anybody interested?-Please phone me on my Bat-Phone! 07871499664.
Course times are to be announced,and all fees must be cleared "one week" before course commencement.This is a "non profit" run course,and only just covers our expenses! Travel and accomodation are not inclusive,but an info-sheet on best price accomodation around Betwys Y Coed is available "free" on request.We ensure our friends an invaluable and fun learning experience.

Best regards,

Rob Thornton.
