Overview

  • Group size 8 people
  • Instructor REI Specialist

Navigating in the backcountry is a cinch when you have a compass and you know how to use it! In this hands-on workshop you'll practice planning a route by taking both map and compass bearings, accounting for declination, and locating yourself on a map using triangulation. Experience reading a topographic map is strongly recommended.
