Equipment, in-course transport, instruction, and tea and coffee.

About the Event

The course will be based at the Tollymore National Outdoor Centre and utilises many challenging areas of the Mournes.

The course will include:

Planning a night journey

The right equipment in the right place (head torch, compass, etc)

Timing and pacing

Fine detail navigation, including subtle contour features and relocation techniques

Poor visibility / night navigation in the mountain environment

This course is for those with some previous hillwalking experience and map reading skills who want to move it up a notch and fine tune all aspects of their skills especially in darkness or very poor visibility.

Practising your navigation at night is an excellent means of refining your navigational skills and giving yourself the confidence to navigate in many testing conditions.

What to Bring

Bring any of your own personal hillwaking outdoor clothing and kit. Such as, waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, mourne map (1:25,000), and spare clothes (it’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty).

Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but it is preferable to use your own were possible.
