A good fun hill/mountain day with little distance covered, this was part of my scouting mountain leader training. In scouting we have the Terrain 1 qualification which has the same syllabus as the MLTE walking group leader award and allows you to take parties of scouts on the hill up to 800m altitude and 3 hours walk from a help access point. This is the permit I hold already.
The terrain 2 qualification removes that 800m ceiling and access time to help limit and follows the same syllabus as the full ML qualification with the exception of wild camping, as in scouting this is covered in the nights away permit. I'm currently working towards the terrain 2 permit and this was a training and practice day for steep ground work and emergency rope work.
We walked not far from the National Park Car Park, up a small dale that offered some short steep sides with limestone crags on which we could practice all aspects of emergency rope work; belaying, roped ascent, roped descent and abseiling for example. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A beautifully hot day, clear blue skies, sun tan cream needed being sat in sun trap. Quite remarkable for the end of March.
