There are lots of organisations large and small that offer day adventures, ghyll scrambling, climbing, scrambling, walking, or training for hill-walking, mountain leader and climbing awards - this is a really good one. Andy and his small team have years of experience, and give it a no-nonsense approach but empathically and with plenty of learning even on assessment.

I had a five day Mountain Leader Award assessment, and was still learning up until the last hour of the 60 hours plus of assessment. We were helped to relax into the assessment (which helped but didn't fully take away the tension!), and we had this interesting and great mix of evaluation, feedback and teaching yet whilst being assessed to high standard. This is all through the Mountain Training (UK) scheme - look it up. Andy will do short courses, customised ones etc, and he and his team had a wealth of experience and knowledge to make it valuable, authentic, and interesting.

We felt really stretched, but Andy and Phil always made it constructive.

Would definitely recommend them for training, assessment or just plain safe adventurous fun.
