Hillwalking and Mountaineering
Mountaineering Skills Course
This course will take novices to Mountain Leader standard. We will teach you how to read a map and use a compass – in
the mountains. The course will progress from a day walk in the Peak District to full mountain weekends, including high level, light weight camping. There are 4 evening sessions to go though the theory of navigation and equipment and 5 weekend camps in the Peaks, Dales, Lake District and Wales.
Hill Walking Club
Like the other “clubs” the Hill-walking club has a regular schedule of meetings (in the hills). With trips suitable for all abilities and fitness levels; from short day walks in the Peak District to full on Scottish mountain expeditions.
The club is open to Scouts, Explorers, Network and Leaders. We can train you to use a map and compass, developing the skills of young and not-so-young alike. Perhaps you just need some help organising or running a walking trip for your troop/Unit. We can help at all levels including:
D of E expeditions;
Scout Expedition challenge;
Platinum & diamond expeditions.
