This three day course aims to provide new and novice walkers with a solid foundation of knowledge that will allow them to make the informed decisions required in order to enjoy walks and adventures in the upland hill & mountain environments.

ITINERARY 

Day 1 - Subjects we will cover will include preparing for a day on the mountains, interpreting weather forecasts, choosing a suitable route, selecting appropriate equipment and clothing, an introduction to map reading and navigation, emergency procedures and how to organise a rescue before heading out into the hills to introduce practical skills.

Day 1 Evening - Discuss and recap subjects covered during the day and use this to plan a route for our upcoming 2 day 'mini exped & wild camp'.

Day 2 - We will set out on our 'mini expedition' with a full day journeying into the upper environment of our mountain area. We will look at employing a navigational strategy, demonstrate & practice navigational skills in a 'real' scenario as we progress on our route. We will  discuss camp craft, associated responsibilities and restrictions, as part of our choosing a suitable site for our overnight wild camp. After making camp we will (non-compulsory) head out after sunset for a night navigation exercise , which will introduce the skills required to navigate in conditions of poor visibility.

Day 3 -  We will 'break' camp early morning and spend a full day completing our 'expend' by practicing the new skills gained whilst we journey through the mountains.

(Please note: adverse weather conditions may affect proposed itinerary)

Those attending should have an adequate level of fitness needed for 3 full days walking in mountainous terrain, with the addition of a wild camp. Appropriate clothing and equipment for the conditions will be required to gain the most from the course. No previous navigational knowledge is required but may be of benefit.
