Adventure highlights

For the advanced course, we head to the more complex terrain within the Peak District, for 2 full days of training which provides much more time to practice the skills in more complex terrain providing the ideal environment to learn from your course leader. This course is an ideal continuation for those who have already completed an intermediate course or already have good skills. You'll spend 2 days in the outdoors learning more advanced techniques and refining those you already have. Much of the time will be spent on complex terrain navigating to smaller features and with longer and more complex legs and much more focus on contours. I'll tailor the exercises for each person based on their level of skill and those areas you'd like to work on perfecting. The course cost quoted does not include accommodation.
