You may remember earlier this year that i assisted Dave as he wanted to refresh and top up his navigation skills in the mountains before leading a group of friends on the National three peaks challenge. Dave and friends were looking for an adventure and were raising money for local causes.
I bumped into Dave earlier this week and he told me about the success of his group on National three peaks. The map and compass navigation, taking and giving grid references, timings and pacing, interpreting mountain weather forecasts and appropriate clothing and footwear that we covered in our preparation day have led Dave and his group to successful ascents of Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafel Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales were completed.
Well done folks. From speaking to Dave and the photographs he has sent me you had some challenging conditions by the looks of it. Good memories formed!
What next Dave? Put your thinking cap on.
