Course description: 

Mountain Leader Training Course at Plas y Brenin in Snowdonia

Grant awarded: 

The ML training course run by Plas y Brenin is an excellent course for competent and experienced hillwalkers. In 6 days it covers pretty much all areas of hillwalking skills including advanced navigation, emergency ropework, emergency procedures, group leadership and campcraft. It develops your knowledge of the weather, the environment and the landscape.

The centre is very well run, the rooms are smart, the food excellent and the staff friendly and excellent teachers. The cost may be high but it is well worth it.
