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.

    Notes

    New Format! This workshop features enhancements with more interaction and practice opportunities. If possible, we recommend participants to also register for the map reading workshop (typically scheduled the same day on the preceding week).
