The weekend was spend looking at direct and in direct belays and anchor selection. A lot of time on Navigation using Contour interpretation navigation in order that the leader can spend time selecting the best route for their group running the navigation in the background. Hand railing natural features like gullies and ridges enable really efficient navigation on steep ground. Mark really got to grips with this and was strong on the geology and flora.
