Hill Skills Training Courses
Learn the skills to take yourself around the hills and mountains of the UK. Based in the North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales and Moors or the Lake District we will use the surrounding fells of the Northern Lake District to practice and refine the skills and knowledge needed for safe mountain or moor travel.
The courses will look at safe movement around the hills and mountains, navigation techniques and strategies, clothing and equipment and what to do if it all goes wrong. In winter we will concentrate on the use of ice axes and crampons to facilitate moving across snow and ice and what to do in the event of a slip. The courses can be based on day walking or a lightweight camping trip can be used to teach the skills of expeditioning. Tents, sleeping mats and 55L rucksacks are available to hire for a small charge.
- Course only, 2 day course - £130, 3 day course - £190
- Equipment hire: £10 for tent & sleeping mat, £5 for 55L rucksack.
