The mountains of the UK are remote, technical and exposed to harsh and unpredictable weather. This makes them hazardous places for novice walkers, and the ML is designed to help responsible leaders who wish to operate in mountainous terrain in summer conditions.

The ML course helps to develop your group management skills, your ability to navigate in all conditions and to deal with mountain hazards (including steep ground).

The course includes one night of lightweight high level camping.

Please read http://www.mountain-training.org/walking/skills-and-awards/mountain-leader for the full syllabus requirements.

This course is based at Hampshire & Cass Foundation Mountain Centre near Brecon. The first half of the course is delivered in the Brecon Beacons, with the expedition taking place in larger rockier mountains of North Wales.

This is a non residential course, however there may be self catering accommodation available. For technical enquiries or accommodation options, please email the Hampshire & Cass Foundation Mountain Centre mountaincentre@hants.gov.uk
