This is a great opportunity for you to take your poor visibility navigation skills to the next level, and it is perfect as a refresher before an assessment. We’ll start off in the light to let you get tuned in, and then navigate into darkness. You’ll learn how to navigate using the shape of the ground with contour-only maps, and then transfer this knowledge back to normal maps, again focusing primarily on the shape of the ground. This will really sharpen your navigation skills so that you no longer rely on line features, such as streams, walls and paths, which can all change. Open to Mountain Leader trainees and award holders, and Lowland Leader trainees and award holders.
Run by Chris Ensoll, International Mountain Guide and experienced course provider of Lowland Leader, Mountain Leader, Single Pitch Award, Rock Climbing Instructor, Climbing Wall Award and Climbing Wall Instructor.
