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.

It was over-subscribed with 100 attendees. 

The symposium was for all those interested in undertaking an expedition, at any level, anywhere in the world.

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.
