Iím a reasonably competent climber, and I have previously lead icefalls, winter routes, trad routes single pitch and in the Alps, etc.
Next weekend we are planning to go to Snowdonia with a mate whoís a competent hill walker, has done some high altitude hiking as well as scrambling, but has never lead.
Initially I was thinking of doing the Snowdon Horseshoe as itís meant to be the best hill walk in the area, and Iím assuming that we wonít need any protection (friends, nuts) for that, even in February (?)
Also perhaps you could recommend a scramble, or a hill walk with some scrambling sections, so that both of us could have a good day out with me leading a few scrambling/easy climbing (Diff maximum, or winter I-II) pitches placing gear, and my friend learning the basics of handling trad gear etc?
