Registration closed

  • Group size: 8
  • 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.


This is part 2. Part 1 is Map Reading which is REQUIRED knowledge for this class. Map Reading is offered prior to this class, on the same day and you can register here:
