Mountain Skills Course

Mountain Skills

Our Mountain Skills Course aims to leave you with the basic tools to be confident to tackle a mountain walk independently.  It may be you already have these skills so we could concentrate on more advanced techniques.  Topics include navigation, route planning, decision making and risk assessment, emergency techniques, as well as taking in some breath-taking scenery.  A basic level of fitness is required as the days can be tailored to meet your needs.  This course can be based in the Preseli Hills of Pembrokeshire, the Brecon Beacons or Snowdonia, get in touch to discuss!

The longer you spend with us the more in depth we can go in to the skills for poor visibility navigation, campcraft, emergency walking rope-work and scrambling!
