/ good geology boooks fro MIA assessment
can anyone recommend a decent book on the subject/ Will be doing assessment in snowdonia so N wales geology more relevant!!!
Rock Trails Snowdonia by Paul Gannon
Granite and Grit by Ronald Turnbull.
Good luck with the assessment
Try this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Granite-Grit-Walkers-Geology-Mountains/dp/071123180X
Easy to read and very relevant.
I didn't get on with it myself but it's worth a look.
do you have mike raines book ? not as detailed on geology but useful section in there as well as all the plant and other stuff
yep got that a great read butnthink i may need deeper knowledge??
Very interesting thread!
on the same point any good ideas for what to do a 10 min lecturetee on??? want to do something a bit different than the usual stuff that will be a bit more interesting fro all???
don't need massive geological knowledge, agree Mikes book is a summary but that is
the level, remmeber you are trying to inspire/educate clients not teach a geology course.
re talk - what are you interested in ? I did mine on PTSD and climbers very left-field for
most people ! Others in my group did Comedy in mountaineering literature, One climb
on Ben Nevis, Rescue helicopters privatisation (i think!), and some plant stuff which
was good as well. they were all good (must have been another one !) I nearly did
invasive species in snowdonia (like rhoddys etc) ....
PbyaB suggestion is sound as it will make you focus on something that you may/will
need - like maybe tryfans geology. But whatever floats your boat.
Re the 10 min thing, do it on anything you're interested, but for the sake of everyone keep it light hearted. You'll all be stressed and tired so not some dull PowerPoint.
I did mind on why everyone should go and climb in Swanage with a little history and good photos.
