On Friday 23rd March the Pembrokeshire College Borneo Expedition Team travelled to Snowdonia in North Wales for their training weekend. It was a huge success, great fun and marks the final stages of preparation for their epic trip which begins on July 18th.
Over the weekend they trekked high into the mountains, wild camped and practised essential expedition techniques including River Crossings, Emergency Evacuation and First Aid.
As the team encountered the summit of Mount Snowdon in the weekend’s high temperatures they were reminded that Kinabalu is three times higher and very near the equator!! Suffice to say, the expedition team are now training even harder than they were before!
Thank you to everyone who helped us with transportation, kit and risk assessments.
