This trip is primarily for adults who require a Hill walking assessment; either first time applicants or those needing to renew or upgrade their existing permit.
It is also open to any adult scout section Leader who aspires to gaining a Hill walking permit in the future and needs formal training, advice and/or log book experience.
This year we also very much welcome any permit holder who feels the need to refresh their hill skills after the long pandemic-enforced lay-off.
Applicants for assessments must upload their walking log book with their application form so the assessors can review it before the trip. Those applying for a permit for the first time will also have to complete a home paper (which will be discussed on the trip)
Further information about the assessment process can be found on the IMC website.
Sorry, this is not an IMC ‘Have a go’ weekend open to novice hill walkers of those who just fancy a weekend in the hills.
It is assumed that since you have reached the stage of requiring an assessment then you should know what equipment is required to lead a weekend on the hill. Candidates are expected to be able to provide suitable, footware, clothing and equipment, although the IMC will provide group and technical equipment such as group shelters, ropes and helmets.
The map required is: OL17 Snowdon
You will also need a sleeping bag and pillow for use in the centre bunks but crockery and cutlery are provided.
It is essential for all the participants’ safety that everyone has the correct items of personal equipment and clothing and behaves appropriately. The weekend may be wet, windy and cold. Your personal equipment will be checked before going on the hill and anyone without the correct equipment may be refused permission to go onto the hills.
All activities are provided under the rules and regulations of the Scout and Guide Associations for joint adventurous activities.
