Written by one of the best known navigation instructors in the UK this is the definitive and comprehensive 'how to navigate' textbook. It covers every aspect of mountain navigation; summer, winter and overseas, using traditional map and compass as well as devices such as GPS and digital software applications.

This book is a reference tool for every walker and mountaineer, from novice to expert, as well as containing specific ideas for anyone wanting to help teach and instruct others. It is the official navigation handbook for the UK qualification system that includes the Mountain Leader, Winter Mountain Leader, International Mountain Leader, Mountaineering Instructor and Walking Group Leader and is endorsed by the BMC, MCofS and MI.

There are chapters on the Fundamentals, Navigation Techniques, Winter Navigation, Overseas Navigation, Global Positioning system, Digital Mapping Software and Teaching Navigation. It has a functional design with easy-reference colour-coded pages, striking illustrations that complement the text and inspiring photos that give a genuine flavour of what you are up against in the mountains. It is the fourth in a series of manuals from Mountain Leader Training UK which includes the highly successful 'Hill Walking', 'Rock Climbing' and 'Winter Skills'.
