what happened next

So, having run the annual winter skills course, I came back here to the Lake District. I spent most of March just resting and getting some treatment for my back at the nearby osteo practice which seemed to help, then work started picking up and I was off!

Since then I've done a whole range of work with primary & secondary school pupils. We've been climbing, ghyll scrambling, canoeing & kayaking, hill walking amongst other things and I ran a navigation course for a bunch of people at the end of April . The picture on the right shows two of them getting stuck in.

Everyone attending the course agreed that they had learnt a lot from the weekend and were much more confident about their map reading abilities. They were all looking forward to venturing into the hills again and were hoping for some poor visibility conditions in order that they could put their improved skills to the test. If you would like to learn more about map reading, then check out our navigation skills courses page at www.kendalmountaineeringservices.co.uk/navigation and give us a call if you see anything you would like to do.
