Intro to Navigation

mountain - Up to 6 people


This course will take a progressive approach to navigation; from choosing a map, reading the map, understanding scales and symbols and basic contours. 

We will teach you how to orientate the map, measure distances and navigate via linear features such as paths, walls and streams to develop handrailing techniques. This course will teach the fundamentals of map reading and lay the groundwork for those wishing to progress onto the next course and develop their mountain navigation.
