A pleasure and a privilege to run two ‘beginners navigation’ courses for 11 people over the last 3 days.
From ‘what’s a map?’ to having the confidence and competence as navigators to lead their own nav legs in the hills …. and to go on and consolidate these new found skills at home in order to be able to go out and plan and walk their own days in the hills.
A flexible timetable, a bit of indoor theory, and an escape off Mam Tor in to a disused but weather-tight barn, kept most of the weather off. One of the deluges today was biblical, and the faces on the group as lightning struck the next hill along from us (Back Tor), were ‘slightly alarmed’.
Grand days out 👍
