Navigation Improver

mountain - Up to 6 people


This course will build on the previous navigation programme. We will look at the complexity of timing and pacing and progress towards intricate contour interpretation. More advanced compass work will be detailed on this course, such as taking and following bearings and using back bearings. We hope to ensure people leave with the confidence to navigate in mountain terrain and poor visibility by the end of this course.
