Mountain Leader Refresher: Hazards of steep ground


This one day course in Snowdonia concentrates on the Hazards of Steep ground section of the Mountain Leader syllabus. We will spend time re-capping skills from the beginning and by the end of the day I will be able to give you detailed feedback on where you are at in terms of being ready for assessment.

What will we cover?

• Suitability of different types, sizes and lengths of rope.
• Rope management.
• Appropriate knots.
• Appropriate methods of belaying, including choice of safe anchors
• How to protect a short scramble type descent or ascent for the whole party.
• How to safeguard a single party member.
• How to safeguard yourself in descent on scrambling type terrain.

There will also be opportunities throughout the day to add to your general knowledge.


Please get in touch to discuss dates and I will advertise a course to suit you.

I went on an ML refresher day with Lou and had a brilliant day. We covered the topics that I and the others in the group had questions about and spent time practicing in context to make sure we were happy. All of my questions were answered and I went away feeling much more confident working towards my assessment. I would highly recommend to anyone Thanks Lou!
