Relocation Skills courses in the Yorkshire Dales | TeamWalking | Navigation Skills

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 they get lost (misplaced) and develop a set of reliable techniques to help them get back on track.

PHOTOS FROM OUR NOV 2019 COURSE

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
  • Key Relocation Skills for valleys, hills, moutains and poor visibility
  • Learn what information you can use around you to locate yourself
  • Strategies for finding features (linear, area & spot features)
  • Search techniques
  • Importance of planning – escape routes & safety bearings
  • How to stay calm and focussed when you are misplaced
  • Plus... brush up your hill and navigation skills
