Extreme DofE

A good friend of mine (Chris "Cheeky-Chops" Horobin) runs an excellent expedition services company called Wild Country Consultants and he asked me to help out with a five day Gold DofE Qualifier expedition in the Brecon Beacons that he was managing for a school from South London. The conditions were pretty chilly with snow on the hills from around 600m, frozen ground all around and cascades of ice down to road level. Chris had sensibly decided to hire in a Winter ML to work on the course incase it all went wrong (me!). 

All five teams completed their expedition and they should all be very proud of their achievements. They certainly had it tough but kept going, with smiles on their faces and blister plasters on their feet. Very well done indeed teams.
