A Dodgy Compass!
Sierra Nevada Guides run skills courses in Spain's Sierra Nevada teaching how to operate safely in the mountains. This includes navigation where we believe the ability to use a map and compass vital as a foundation. Recently we had a student turn up with an imitation of a Silva compass that instead of pointing north actually pointed south!
|The red needle always points north!|
If you want to learn the skills essential for safe mountaineering book onto one of our scheduled courses or contact us as we often provide 1:1 tuition.
