The Summer Mountain Leader (ML) scheme is designed for people who want to lead groups in the mountains, hills and moorlands of the UK and Ireland, in non-winter conditions.

If you love being out in the mountains and want to share your enthusiasm with others, become a Mountain Leader and you’ll never look back!
