Overview

  • Group size 12 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

    This class is a great refresher course or introduction to the basics. If you are starting from the beginning, the Map Reading workshop is required for this class. For a more hands on experience we also offer a six hour Backcountry Navigation with a Map & Compass field class.
