6 Day Mountain Craft Course

Price: £375 per person
Ratio: 1:6
Previous experience: None required
Length: 6 days

Who is the course suitable for?

The mountains of the UK are remote, technical and exposed to harsh and unpredictable weather. This makes them a hazardous place for novice walkers and this course is designed to equip you with the skills to enjoy them safely and includes an overnight wild camp with night navigation exercise, full navigation skills training, two days on grade 1 scrambling ground and a tour of the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team base.

The course covers many of the key components of a Mountain Leader training course but teaches the key skills whereas the Mountain Leader course looks at how to pass those skills onto other people.

This course is suitable for beginners with limited previous experience in the mountains or for people with some experience looking to build upon it. It also makes a good foundation course for people looking to progress onto the Mountain Leader scheme.
