Details

Join Paul, George Fisher staff member, qualified Mountain Leader and Keswick Mountain Rescue Team member for a taster session on navigation and mountain safety.

The aim is to boost your personal confidence in using a map and compass to:

* navigate safely (including in poor visibility / mist) and to relocate if lost
* give your location to mountain rescue if you or your party are injured
* plan a route suitable for the weather conditions, including escape routes
* understand how a smartphone can help and when a GPS is more useful

(This is not a GPS training course, though, this is 'navigation without batteries').
