Scotland’s mountains provide the hill walker, mountaineer and climber with some of the toughest navigational challenges available. A skill that demands absolute concentration when battling the elements all year round. Not to be dismissed, navigation is the most important skills you will learn for both summer and winter months.
Timing, pacing, map interpretation, re-section, back bearing, aspect of slope and attack points - just some of the many skills that you are required to master which will allow you to become a confident navigator in any condition.
During this coming summer season, Di Gilbert Mountaineering will be providing courses in mountain navigation.
These are courses aimed specifically at individuals who wish to travel safely and efficiently in our mountain environment.
They last 2 days and are normally run over a weekend, based in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park.
