Thanks very much for providing the outstanding mountain navigation course, I now feel confident to tackle mountain navigation in all but the worst weather conditions.
Kay and myself went for another walk on Monday, this time up to Pen Y Fan and onto the adjoining peaks, this gave me the chance to put some of the navigation techniques that you taught me into practice, but without the security blanket of you being there.Paul Davis - May 2014
