Mountain Skills & Navigation weekend

Mountain Skills & Navigation weekend
Borrowdale, Lake District
31st March / 1st April 2012

Just returned from a Mountain Skills & Navigation weekend, based at Rosthwaite in Borrowdale. On the first day we headed up onto Rosthwaite Fell, with its complex terrain of crags and steep ground where we practiced navigation skills, compass work and essential kit.

On the second day we went up to Honister, Dubs Quarry, Haystacks, Loft Beck and Brandreth, with a steep scrambly descent back to Honister.

The next Mountain Skills course is in Great Langdale on the 13th & 14th August
