1-DAY RELOCATION SKILLS COURSES IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES

With Mark Reid author of ‘The Inn Way’ guidebooks & Mountain Leader

This 1-day Relocation skills course in the Yorkshire Dales is ideal for experienced and accomplished hill-walkers who want to…

  • Know what to do if the mist comes down, or you get lost (misplaced)
  • Develop a set of reliable techniques to help you get back on track
  • Stay calm and focussed when you are unsure of your location, and deal with the situation effectively
  • Learn what information you can use around you to establish your location
  • Understand the various strategies to use to get back on track
  • Brush up on your hill & navigation skills (bearings, contours, distance estimation etc)

During the course, we will move progressively into more challenging terrain and conditions, and we will actively seek out poor visibility and featureless terrain. Once we have coached you on the key relocation skills, then we will get you ‘lost’ so you can put your new skills into practice (you will always be accompanied by your instructor, so you won’t be truly lost!).

COURSE CONTENT
  • Skills, strategies & techniques for relocation when you are misplaced or lost
  • Key Relocation skills for valleys, hills, featureless terrain and poor visibility
  • Strategies for finding features (linear, area & spot features)
  • Search techniques
  • Importance of planning – escape routes & safety bearings
  • Plus... brush up your key hill, map & navigation skills
