If you already have a basic level of navigation skills then our improver course may be right up your street. As the courses are run on a bespoke basis, we can spend some of the course refreshing the basics skills. This course will generally be based in a more complex area of terrain where less obvious features such as paths and walls can be used to navigate by. What this allows us to work on is your ability to move across open ground using techniques such as bearings, pacing and timing as well as interpreting the contours.
The course is a practical one with all of the course spent out on the fell, and the course generally lasts about 6 hours. We have two great venues in Borrowdale and Langdale, however this course can again be held in a variety of locations to suit.

It is very rare that we are unable to provide a leader for an event, but as I'm sure you can appreciate the winter months can provide some harsh weather conditions and we will only take a booking if we deem it safe to head out.
