Whether you are a Mountain Leader Aspirant or just a hill walker then this skills course can be of great benefit to you. If you enjoy a bit of scrambling on broken terrain with friends and family then having the skills to be able to protect them and yourself is an added bonus.

If you are a Mountain Leader then you will probably know this is one of the most failed modules alongside Navigation, so having a refresher course before you go to assessment could be a great benefit. Over the course of the day we'd hope to cover:


  • 'Spotting' - Providing support whilst scrambling

  • Confidence Roping,  Belay Methods & Knots

  • Anchor Selection

  • Route Finding

  • The Leaders Descent - Abseiling with just a rope

Security on Steep Ground & Scrambling Skills Course

  • If you are looking to book your challenge event that occurs within the next 72 hours please email us on lakelandmountainguides@live.co.uk or call us on 07557022362. 

    It is very rare that we are unable to provide a leader for an event, but as I'm sure you can appreciate the winter months can provide some harsh weather conditions and we will only take a booking if we deem it safe to head out.
