I undertook the Mountain Skills course with Alan in June 2019. The course was perfectly taught, to meet the requirements of all attendees, and I certainly feel that I have come away with both old skills renewed and new skills that I can be confident in implementing on the hills.
The balance between the theory and the practical felt right, and we had a day and a half out in the beautiful Brecon Beacons putting everything into practice in the sun, rain and hail!
Alan has a wonderful manner of imparting knowledge so that you barely feel that you are learning, but yet the information all sinks in and (so far) sticks!
A course I would thoroughly recommend for anyone thinking of spending some time exploring the hills and mountains!
