Excellent reading for all walking group leaders.,
This review is from: Hill Walking: The Official Handbook of the Mountain Leader and Walking Group Leader Schemes (Paperback)
I bought this book on recommendation whilst completing my BELA qualification and I am glad I did.
Full of tips and information to enforce the teaching on the course, techniques are fully explained and illustrated.
Particularly useful where the sections on navigational techniques, following bearings and maps. Also interesting where the chapters on clothing and equipment, weather, party management and dealing with hazards. Written by an expert with help from people working in the industry this book is a source of reference for anybody studying for a qualification or just to increase their knowledge to allow them to walk safely in the hills.
