The Mountain skills course develops mountain skills. Nic , James and Matty wanted to make sure they had everything covered. We went through everything required to look after yourself is covered from navigation to what to pack in your rucksack. Will spent 2 days out in the mountains discussing what to do when, personal kit, and they developed their navigation skills particularly on the contour interpretation front.
