The Mountain Leader (ML) Award is for those who wish to lead others in the mountains and hills of Ireland and the UK. It is designed to promote the safe enjoyment of the mountains and provides instruction in the skills required for those who wish to lead groups.
Rock climbing and leading groups in winter (Snow/Ice) conditions are not covered by the ML.
The course runs over 5 days, but can be split into two chunks and completed over a number of weeks.
ML1: 3 days, including at least one evening of night navigation
