Mountain Leader Award

Carol has been training and assessing Mountain Leaders in Cumbria and Scotland for over 20 years. Carolclimb run friendly professional training and assessment courses from two bases. Carol and Richard are both highly experienced trainers and tutors and will work with you personally on all our courses

Wastwater YHA, Wasdale. This stunning location on the shores of Wastwater makes a superb base for Mountain Leader Training and Assessments. All our training areas are in walking distance of the Youth Hostel, so we do not spend hours driving around the countryside.

St. John's in the Vale, Nr. Keswick only 25minutes from the M. 6. Penrith. This is an excellent venue in a beautiful setting. The courses are self catering and accomodation is in en-suite bunkrooms (4 person ). Again all training areas are within walking distance of the Centre.

Transfers from local train (Seascale) / bus stations (Whitehaven) can be arranged.

Mountain Leader Training £425.00 self-catering.
