This qualification trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead walking groups in winter conditions in the mountains. The use of crampons and axes is covered in the scheme. It builds on the skills acquired in the Mountain Leader qualification, which candidates must hold to access the Winter Mountain Leader scheme.
