December 1st – 4th: 2020

This 2.5 day course is based on the UIAA course I deliver in Indonesia and Morocco. It is intended to offer the opportunity for those wishing to learn new skills or as an introduction or refresher to the Hill and Moorland Leader or Mountain Leader Awards. A review of DLOGs with appropriate action plans is included for candidates. The course will be held, subject to COVID-19 guidelines, at the self-contained Wigwam Pods in the Cambrian Mountains (own expense). This outdoor course will take place on Pumlumon and Cader Idris and is limited to 8 participants.

Course Tutors: Helen Menhinick (HML) + Alan Ward (IML)
