So What Do You Actually Do On A Mountain Leader Steep Ground Masterclass?

Brilliant course and perfect recap of rope work and steep ground assurance ahead of ML assessments. Would also be a great refresher course for people who have already done their ML. Instructors were very good :)

I found the teaching in the steep ground workshop to be extremely insightful. Chris has clearly spent a long time thinking about how to teach this topic and it was taught excellently. Very informative and enjoyable session.
