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?


Learn navigation strategies to help you navigate in complex terrain and in poor visibility. Develop what you already know to get the most out of what the hills and mountains have to offer!
