Wild Camping Course in Langdales

09:10




Nice weekend wild camping course. On Saturday we looked at navigating with good linear features like paths, walls and streams. We got the stoves out at lunch for a brew.  Then in the afternoon we practiced some micro navigation using compass bearings and pacing. We selected a spot to camp with a tremendous view Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle.  A heavy rain shower put us off a night walk, so we turned in early. Overnight there was more rain, hail and even snow but we were cosy and warm in our tents.

On Sunday we looked at timing to judge distance using Naismith's rule and headed up High Raise in mist. From there we crossed rougher terrain to Stake Pass and then to Angle Tarn. We refueled with lunch and another brew before following the valley back to the pub and a well earned half pint.

Just wanted to write a quick note after a great wild camping and navigating weekend. I learnt a lot and without doubt feel a lot more confident in the use of a compass. This was in part due to the immersive experience of learning over two days, staying out in the hill and your teaching skill and patience. It has given me a very solid foundation upon which to build. I would happily recommend you to others.
Thank you very much
