The official handbook of the Mountain Leader and Walking Group Leader schemes.
Packed with essential information and techniques in three parts: Getting Around in the Hills, The Upland Environment and Group Management.
The book is a reference tool for every walker as well as for those who wish to lead in the hills. Its functional design with easy-reference colour-coded pages, striking illustrations that complement the text and accurate relief and line maps make Hill Walking an indispensable guide to the skills required for summer hill walking.
Mountain Leader Training has been at the forefront in the development of walkers' skills for forty years.
Hill Walking is the first of a series of manuals for walkers and climbers and has been produced by collaboration between the authors at the Mountain Training Trust's centre, Plas y Brenin, and experts within Mountain Leader Training.
Steve Long is a professional climbing instructor and fully qualified International Mountain Guide, and is Chief Office for Mountain Leader Training in the UK. He has written many articles about rock climbing and contributed to several books.
