As you progress into more remote areas of the British mountains, you will quickly realise how complex terrain can get. Wild weather, featureless terrain and even darkness can challenge our navigation. The likelihood of getting lost is a present danger and in poor visability, everything looks the same. So how can we navigate when we are blinded by nature itself?


  • Our ADVANCED NAVIGATION course is for those who are either experienced in navigating, have done both our INTRO TO NAVIGATION and INTERMEDIATE NAVIGATION courses or possibly considering going for the Hill and Moorland or Mountain Leader qualifications.

  • We will cover the following skills:

    • Use of altimetres

    • Accurate compass work

    • Poor visibility/night navigation

    • Map memory

    • Contour only navigation

    • Small contour features

    • Micro navigation

    • Aspect of slope

    • Back bearings

    • Resections

    • Map memory

    • Dead reckoning

    • Using the group to aid navigation
