Rock Climbing, Navigation & Mountain Skills

1 Day Navigation Training

Do you enjoy walking in the mountains? Would you like to do more but aren't quite so confident to tackle the mountains alone? Why not come out with us and do some bespoke training and development.
Let us help develop your skills from;

  • Understanding map signs & symbols
  • Basic compass skills
  • Simple navigation tactics
  • Estimating time and distance
  • Basic contour interpretation
  • Relocation: What to do when you don't know where you are

The day will run in a very relaxed manner and learning will run at a pace that suits your needs. All of this will be done in the amazing setting of the Lake District. Who says learning doesn't have to be fun.
Led and taught by an experienced, passionate and active mountaineer, walker and climber. Dan will help guide you throughout the day and leave you feeling confident enough to go out and experience the mountains whenever you want.

Is it for me?
Anyone seeking to improve their navigation skills, learn some new techniques and gain confidence in their ability. A reasonable level of fitness will be required, but the pace of the day will be done at your normal day out walking pace.

Start and Finish
The day runs from 9.30am until 4.30pm. We aim to maximise our time out on the hill for a greater experience and learn on the go. Contact us with your preferred date(s) that suit you and the numbers and we'll get back to you with all the details
