2015-03 Mountaineering Course Level 2   Leave a comment

The mighty Centre Excursionista Maspujols, who recently ran a Level 1 course of Mountaineering, have now completed the second level with collaboration from Federation mountain guides.  I was lucky enough to sit in on a few theory sessions, and this looks to be great value.  Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll have a recognised qualification (and certificate) not to mention the all important knowledge in all areas of mountaineering.

Areas covered included rock, mixed and ice climbing, including tying different types of knots, placing nuts and cams & ice screws, setting up equalised anchors, and abseiling, off-piste skiing including avalanches, transceivers and probes, setting up belays in snow, roped-up trekking, map & compass reading, clothing and equipment, and lots more besides.

With 4 people per guide, the practical session in the beautiful Castellfollit (Poblet) proved to be a safe and controlled granite environment at lower altitude, before getting into a snowy environment at higher altitude in the pre Pyrenees.

Can’t wait for level 3…
