1974 summer season

The season started after the training in late May in north east Snowdonia (near Conwy) and I can still remember the terrific views from the Foel Lus slopes above Penmaenmawr and Dwygyfylchi.

Into the mountains!

The Llanrwst posting was an exciting opportunity: another beautiful part of the world and one that I knew little of and there was new training (for the mountains) on offer. I knew some of the people and it was the people of the srea who made the posting rather special. In the event I had two periods at the office in Llanrwst, a posting to Bala for several months in the winter of 1973/4 provided yet perhaps unique mapping experience.
