MENTORING


Are you working towards a Mountain Training qualification? If so, I can help you get there. I have extensive expereince of working in the industry and can offer you guidance on what you need to do to become a better leader or instructor.


I will personlise things to help you achieve your goals. We need to meet to discuss your requirements and can take it from there. 

How to teach Navigation


A day long workshop to help you with ideas for teaching navigation. We will start in a cafe and head out onto the hill from there. Bring along 1:25k, 1:50k maps for the Capel Curig area and Harvey's ones too if you have them. You'll also need your compass (Silva type 4 or similar) and walking kit to look after yourself for the day, food and drink.





Night Navigation


Got an assessment coming up? Well I can help you fine tune your poor visibility and night navigation. I will help you with your strageties and how you follow them through for success. I can also give you feedback on where you are at the moment to help you improve for that assessment that is looming.

It will be an evening event starting at 5.30pm and finishing by 10.30pm. 





Tyroleans & Clip LInes


Essential development if you want to run group adventure sessions at a more advanced level in a gorge or by the sea. 

We will look at a variety of ways to set tyroelans and zipe lines plus setting safe clip lines too.
