|Advanced Mountain Skills|
Aimed at more experienced walkers, this course builds on existing skills, and also on those covered on the Intermediate Mountain Skills course.
We will introduce you micro-navigation - the most detailed and accurate use of the map possible,together with using pacing and timing as effective tools for navigation and "knowing where you are in all conditions". Using the compass to walk accurately on a set bearing will also be practiced to allow you to find a remote point in poor visibility across featureless terrain. We also look at route choice and safety precautions in steep ground and the simple use of a rope, emergency procedures and remote first aid.
