The Mountain Club of South Africa – Magaliesberg section has kindly given permission to the Paarl/Wellington seciton to publish and host in PDF format “The South African Mountain Leadership Guide” which was first released in the 1980’s on their website. This book although no longer in print, is still a valuable training aid for all mountaineers, and it is through this project that the MDT and MCSA hope to promote safe use of our mountains.

The download is free of charge and is made available subject to them not being sold in any way. The MDT, MCSA and Paarl/Wellington section takes no responsibility for the use or misuse of this material. This book is not intended as a replacement for professional training in mountaineering skills.
