Advanced Navigation Day

I was joined for the day by Racheal, Andi, Andy, Steve & John for an advanced navigation course here in Snowdonia. It has stayed dry all day and we have had a great day using contour only maps to get our heads round contours and progress people onto Jedi style navigation. When map-makers create a map the contours are the first piece of information to get drawn onto the blank piece of paper and hence they are always accurate, the ability to navigate using them alone is a valuable skill and enhances all mountain navigation and gives an enjoyable day out too!
