Navigation courses

Navigation is THE fundamental skill that underpins what we do in the mountains, whether hillwalking, scrambling or climbing. Smartphones & GPS are amazing technologies that can really help us on the hill, but they have their limits and pitfalls, so it's still absolutely essential to be able to read a paper map and use a compass. It's also really satisfying & confidence-ispiring knowing you have the skills!
