24 Jul 2019 Micro-Navigation/Poor Visibility Techniques
Wed 24 Jul 2019
Suitable for aspirant mountain leaders/instructors + those looking for a skills boost
Mountain weather can change at an alarming speed, especially in the British hills, and once the mist is down even the easiest ground can become confusing and difficult. On this moorland based one-day course, I teach a range of simple yet effective techniques which will allow you to find your way with confidence through the thickest weather. These include compass skills, and time & distance estimation. Some of the micro-navigation techniques rely on a reasonable working knowledge of map interpretation, so I recommend that you have at least a basic grasp of map skills before attending this course.
1-day courses – £90/person (maximum 4 people per course).
