Stu McAleese introduces the symposium

The Mountaineering, Climbing and Trekking Expedition Symposium held at Plas y Brenin this weekend proved to be a great success.

The atmosphere at the symposium was fantastic.  There was a plethora of relevant workshops as well as amazing illustrated lectures from Kenton Cool and James McHaffie.
