Navigation Coaching: Advanced

Looking at the finer skills of navigation, to help you venture out in the most challenging of environments and British mountainous and wild places.

Undertaken off the path often in rolling complicated hills with indistinct paths and routes and then rocky steep Mountains, somewhere physically demanding as well as topographically different.

Precedence is placed heavily on micro contour interpretation, moving from tiny features onward to tiny features.

Your accuracy, timing and pacing will be fine tuned. This is about detail not distance.

Basic re-location strategies are covered along with area searches for specific targets in poor weather conditions during the day and night.

Use the compass to precisely locate or re locate yourself e.g. basic resections, back bearings, aspect of slope etc

This is both polishing and pushing navigation skills to the limit with huge emphasis on tactics and total focus on the contours as there wont be many paths. Making tough terrain and navigation as simple as possible.

Fast accurate navigation, with a whole host of simple tools to get there easily.

A short section of night navigation may be included i.e. using the poor weather and visibility skills for real.
