8-9 Oct 2019 Mountain & Moorland Navigation – Stage 2

8 October - 9 October

Suitable for aspirant mountain leaders/instructors + those looking for a skills boost.

You do not need to know where you are all the time, especially if you can combine and adapt basic navigation skills. On this course I show you some classic combinations, and give you the confidence to roam across wild countryside. In effect, this course offers you the freedom of the hills.

Combining my Contour Recognition & Relocation Skills courses, on this two-day course I revisit the basic skills and illustrate simple yet effective ways in which to interpret contour patterns. I then get you locationally challenged on a stretch of featureless moorland, and introduce a range of options which allow you to work out your position with confidence. I guarantee you’ll never be “lost” again!

This course is the natural follow-on from my Mountain & Moorland Navigation – Stage 1 course, and I recommend that you have a comfortable working knowledge of both map interpretation and basic poor visibility techniques before attending.

2-day courses – £170/person (maximum 4 people per course).

All courses bookable online at www.mountain-activities.com

15% discount to SWOAPG members. Just use the code “SWOAPG” at checkout when booking online.
