Summer Mountain Leader Training with the MCofS

29th September 2015
Have completed 6-days of Summer Mountain Leader Training based at The Scottish Mountaineering Clubs hut at Lagangarbh, Glen Coe, over two weekends in September. The syllabus included a two day overnight expedition through The Black Mount, a night-time mountain navigation exercise, leadership skills over steep and rough ground, rope work, micro-navigation exercises, mountain weather, access and environment issues. The training, lead by two Professional Mountaineering Instructors, was intensive, but very rewarding and enjoyable. By becoming a member of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS) I was able to book their training course at a substantial discount. Other membership benefits include access to mountaineering club huts like Lagangarbh. Visit my Links page to check out the MCofS website.
