ML Summer Training!

Micro navigation in full on Lake District conditions

This week I'm working on a Summer ML (Mountain Leader) training / assessment course for Apex Training. Today the weather was diabolical, perfect for looking at poor weather navigation, route choice strategies and relocation. From the Three Shire Stone we used the heavily featured area around Wrynose Fell to challenge the group and to test their waterproofs! The rivers have come up extremely quickly and with the heavy rain forecast overnight some routes could become impassable.
