/ SPA and ML courses
I am looking at doing a Mountain Leader Course and a Single Pitch award, hopefully in one go if possible. Looked at quite a few places and the prices seem fairly standard, can anyone recommend any particularly good centres to do them?
I liked Plas-y-Brenin, the food and accommodation were good and I had a great week there. I think it's pretty good value all-in.
I did my ML at Ogwen cottage. Great course, good instructors and about £180 cheaper than PYB.
For my SPA I went through Undercover Rock in Bristol, but the instructor was Tony Penning and I know he runs freelance courses. He was absolutely superb and a brilliant laugh. Highly recommended.
Phill George, llanberis.
Do you mean training or assessment?
both actually would be best,
Personally I'd recommend Plas Y Brenin as they have superb facilities, instructors, location and experience.
