Learn to navigate at an intermediate level in Edale, The Peak District. This intermediate navigation course will go over hill walking and survival skills for advanced navigation in the wilderness.
Woodland Ways Walks - Intermediate Navigation qne day course is designed for those people who have an outline understanding of the features on the map, and would like to develop this knowledge further in order to put into practice more advanced navigation techniques using the map and compass.
This course is run in the wonderful landscape of the Peak District. Initially we will brush up on the basics of interpreting the map within the landscape, understanding scales, calculating distances, providing 4 and 6 figure grid references, and setting the map to ground.
We then move on to more advanced navigation techniques; including orientating the map to identify features, calculating magnetic and grid bearings, walking on a bearing, use of attack points, identification of hazards, use of handrails, relocation strategies, and probably the most important skill to learn of all… contour interpretation.
You will be provided with a map of the area and guided through all of the above skills to provide you with the confidence to plan and execute your own navigational lowland walks using the footpath network.
The course is run entirely out on the hills and is completely "hands on". We operate in all weathers and we would ask you to pay close attention to the kit list. In the event of severe weather, or someone arriving without adequate equipment, it will be the instructors final say as to whether course participants are allowed onto the hills due to safety considerations
The course takes place on the hills surrounding the beautiful hamlet of Edale, in the Peak District National Park.
