Before attending this course you must first have completed your Mountain Leader Award Training.
Students should be reasonably fit and prepared for a long day on the hill running into the evening.
This is for those who soon plan to attend the Mountain Leader Award Assessment and want to iron out any rough edges and get a feel for the assessment standard. This is a troubleshooting day. Your instructor will help you tidy up any loose ends before your assessment
Your instructor may also give you some feedback during or after the course as to your readiness for the assessment at this stage.
Bring any of your own personal hillwalking outdoor clothing and kit, such as waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, Mourne map (1:25,000), compass Silva type 4 or similar, and spare clothes. It’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty.
Please ensure you bring along a device which will allow you to ‘stopwatch’ your time.
Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but as an aspirant ML it is assumed you will be fairly self-sufficient in terms of kit.
Tollymore will supply all ropes for this course and helmets where required.
Lunch, equipment, in-course transport, and instruction.

Our catering is first class, noted both for the quality and quantity of the food that we provide. Your course is catered, so you will be provided with a packed lunch for the day.

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
