Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Plas Y Brenin

I’ve spent nearly a year now ticking off boxes and completing tasks towards obtaining my Mountain Leader accreditation.

From my first training in June last year, hiking up hills in all weathers.  Getting lost in mist.  Leading groups.  Working with DofE and volunteering with the Lake District National Park.

Last weekend in Wales, a ‘pre assessment’ course.  Designed to give confidence for the final assessment.  I’m not sure I’m any less terrified than I was but I have now contributed so much from my bank account that I’m going have to go through with it even if I fail!

The best thing about the ML has to be the ‘class room’.  No stuffy four walls, computers or pens.

Just wide open spaces and mountains.

With the Lakes on my doorstep The National Mountain Sports Centre at Plas Y Brenin made a beautiful change.

Mountain weather in Wales was no less fickle than further north.  One minute thick mist and the next blue sky and sunshine.



I’ve not quite ticked all the boxes but hopefully by September.
