We’re now nearing the end of our Mountain Leader Training course here in Wales. It’s been so amazing learning all these new skills and getting to know the people we’ll be spending the next three and a half months with.
We’ve been blessed to be learning from the best – expedition leader Colin and wilderness first aid expert Jade (who basically founded the ELT program) and the mountain leaders/mountain rescuers Steve and Helen. There hasn’t been a moment i’ve dreaded – it’s all been duly enjoyed.
We’ve done ropework, navigation, orienteering, a long hike and a climb up a mountain, first aid course, river crossings, route planning and much more! And much more to come 🙂
