Are you getting ready for your Summer Mountain Leader course, or has it been a while since you did your summer training and you’re thinking about going for your assessment? Alternatively you been deferred on an aspect of the summer Mountain Leader assessment. Then doing a Summer Mountain Leader refresher course could be just what you need.
Our summer Mountain Leader summer refresher course is a day(s) with a Mountaineering Instructor who will focus on any areas of the syllabus that you feel you need to work and not spend time on areas that you might already be stronger at. At the end of the day(s) you will have been given a practical, hands-on day with plenty of help and advice in as many different situations as possible that will leave you feeling much stronger in those areas you maybe did not feel as strong at.
Personally can then provide you with honest feedback on where you are in relation to the standard required. We will also provide you with a solid action plan of where you need to put your focus on the build-up to the assessment.
We can help in the following areas:
- Navigation – macro, micro and poor visibility/night-nav
- Steep ground emergency rope work in ascent and in descent
- Group management and leadership
- River crossings
- Expedition / wild camping skills
- Kit and equipment selection
- Route planning
- Weather and the environment – flora, fauna, geology
Depending on what you are hoping to cover we normally meet at 9am and it will be full day.
In short … no not at all. We have run this course for people going on to do there training course and want to get up to speed before hand mostly this is coving the Navigation aspect of the course.
