Quality Mountain Days



For people who are aiming to do their Mountain Leader training, or who have allready done so it is important to keep a log of your "Quality Mountain Days."

One easy way to do this is by signing up to UK Hillwalking and logging this online by plotting your route. You can also enter information about the day.

You can also equally keep a paper record as long as it has enough detail about where you went, whether or not you were leading a group and the conditions through out the day.



What actually defines a "Quality Mountain Day" is somewhat subjective, and a lot of people seem to miss understand this. To clear this up here is the definition from the Mountain Leader Handbook.

The full handbook which explains everything about the course can be found online here:

 
Hopefully this should clear some things up! Any more questions then let me know,
