Summer mountain leader course



Whether you're gearing up for your Summer Mountain Leader course, contemplating an assessment after a hiatus, or facing deferral on a specific aspect, our tailored Summer Mountain Leader refresher course is here to meet your needs.

Led by seasoned Mountaineering Instructors, our refresher course focuses on specific syllabus areas you wish to enhance. This ensures a targeted approach that optimizes your time, dedicating the day(s) to refining skills in areas that may need improvement while avoiding unnecessary emphasis on already proficient aspects.

Throughout practical, hands-on sessions, you'll encounter various scenarios, and receive guidance and assistance to strengthen skills in challenging areas. Personalized feedback will be provided, offering an honest assessment of your current standing in relation to the required standard. Additionally, our team will furnish you with a comprehensive action plan, outlining specific areas to concentrate on in preparation for the assessment.

Our expertise spans crucial aspects such as navigation (both macro and micro), poor visibility, and night navigation. We cover steep ground emergency rope work for both ascent and descent, group management and leadership, river crossings, expedition and wild camping skills, kit and equipment selection, route planning, and weather and environmental awareness, including flora, fauna, and geology.

Opt for our Summer Mountain Leader refresher course, and emerge with newfound confidence and proficiency in targeted areas, well-prepared to meet the demands of the assessment. At only £160 per day this could be the difference between passing the course and not.
