Mountain Navigation Course (L2 EST Framework)
March 28 @ 9:00 am - March 29 @ 4:00 pm£125.00
Mountain Navigation course in Snowdonia with outdoor training specialists Original Outdoors.
This course is ideal for people who already feel confident with essential navigation skills they have learnt on our Basic Navigation Course (Level 1), and want to develop their skills further. We revisit the basics such as map and compass work, but take it further to include pacing and timing over difficult terrain, mountain route planning, GPS and mapping software, as well as access issues and the CROW Act – plus emergency techniques.
You will be learning with one of our qualified Mountain Leaders, and you will get plenty of chance to practice your skills as you progress through the weekend. You won’t even need to take notes, as we will post or email information sheets to you after the course. You will not be forced to march vast distances over tough terrain, although we will expect to climb to the summit of at least one mountain on the second day. The pace of the course will be dictated by the ability of the group. Each of our instructors learnt to navigate from scratch, and they understand what it is like to learn a new skill in the outdoors.
A Level 2 EST Framework course.
