A group of air cadets conquered the highest peak in Wales on a summer training camp.
The 12 cadets from 2484 Bassingbourn squadron took part in a week-long camp at Capel Curig, in Snowdonia National Park, Wales, earlier this month.
During their stay, the cadets were challenged with a number of activities including walking, rock climbing, abseiling, climbing Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, along with other challenging peaks in the area.
In addition the group were put to the test when they camped overnight and cooked their own meals out in the field.
Corporal Matt Springall said: “It has been one of the most extraordinary weeks in my cadet career so far and enabled me to develop skills that I can use for the rest of my life.”
