A little Navigation

We spent the third day of our Glenmore Lodge Winter Skills Course lower down today looking at navigation. We used a few simple exercises to get to grips with map orientation and understanding features on an orienteering map (so that we could get lots of legs in). We also looked at compass bearings using the course laid out here at The Lodge. At the end of the day we were out on the 1:50000 maps in the Ryvoan area on a pleasant springlike day.
Teams in from Sneachda report a lot of very black, wet rock but easier snowy lines were still holding on to their snow well.
