Winter Wonderland

While most of us were sleeping off the Christmas turkey 2 of our young leader explorer scouts found themselves on a coach to Scotland where they took part in the Advanced Mountaineering Course run by our friends and neighbours Hertfordshire Scouts at their Mountaineering centre at Lochearnhead in the Scottish Highlands.

Having already graduated from the initial mountaineering course run at Easter Will and Lucy were put through their paces learning the use of ice axes and crampons, avalanche awareness, navigating in poor visibility and generally learning to deal with everything the Scottish winter could throw at them.

Like the look of this? Older scouts can still sign up to the initial course taking place again this Easter…..
