This Next Step Night Navigation Skills course is for those with some previous hillwalking experience and map reading skills who want to move it up a notch and fine tune all aspects of their skills especially in darkness or very poor visibility.
Practising your navigation at night is an excellent means of refining your navigational skills and giving yourself the confidence to navigate in many testing conditions.
Bring any of your own personal hillwaking outdoor clothing and kit. Such as, waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, head torch, mourne map (1:25,000), and spare clothes (it’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty).
Please ensure you bring along a device which will allow you to ‘stopwatch’ your time.
Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but it is preferable to use your own were possible even if it’s just a chance for your instructor to comment on your kit and give advice.
