2019 Course Dates
6th-7th April 2019
Course Timings – Day One
The first day of the course starts in a cafe (and the immediate area), running through the basics of map reading and route planning. After lunch we head onto the slopes of a neighbouring hill, immediately putting into practice the skills we have just discussed. We will also run through the basics of pacing, timing and walking on a bearing.
You can either bring a packed lunch, or buy lunch at the cafe.
Course Timings – Day Two
For the second day we meet underneath Moel Famau, the principle summit in the Clwydian Range. After a short refresher of the skills learnt the day before we will plan and then walk a circular route to the summit of Moel Famau and back, with each student sharing their part of the navigation for the group.
After we return to the base we will review the weekend and work out how you can keep developing the skills at home.
You will need to bring a lunch for this day.
