Salewa Raven Boots: A Review

Weighing around the same as their competitors, but quite a bit cheaper, the Salewa Raven Mountain B2 boots are designed by Salewa for:
High mountain
Rocky/Technical Path
Mixed Mountain Terrain
I bought the boots around 18 months ago and have used them on a variety of terrain. The following is my review based on that use.

Plas Y Brenin: Welsh Winter Mountaineering (A Course Review)

Plas Y Brenin is an outdoor sports education facility with quit a reputation for excellence. Their main site is in the small village of Capel Curig in North Wales right in the Snowdonia National Park. As mentioned in December 2015, I had signed up for a Welsh Winter Mountaineering course with them. The only thing missing was the snow, but some did arrive, and we found more. I mention this separately from my review as this was the only part of the course with much to desire and out of the hands of the Plas Y Brenin team.
