Mountain Leader Training April 2016

ML Training weekend one based at Buttermere YHA with Andy Brown’s Adventures:

Six prospective Mountain Leaders were introduced to the genuine delights of the Buttermere valley.

Two days of spectacular walking weather were enjoyed with a shakedown afternoon ascent of High Snockrigg and Robinson from the YHA on Friday descending to Hassness and a stroll along the lake shore to return.

On Saturday we ascended Red Pike via Bleaberry Tarn and a pleasant scramble to the north of Chapel Crags. During lunch and a brew up we had a discussion about emergency procedure.
Along the ridge southwards then to High Stile and a lovely ridge descent to Birkness Combe, Buttermere shore and back to the YHA.
Well done Sam, Arran, Rhys, Dave, Simon and Alex. Ropework and steep ground training next and looking forward to the expedition phase.
