The Recreation Club and REI have partnered up to provide basic navigation skills using 'map and compass' to find your way. In this class you'll learn the parts of a compass, how to read a topographic map and how to use them in tandem. You'll learn how to pinpoint your location through triangulation and then navigate to new locations by following a bearing. You'll also learn how to plan routes using a topographic map. This is a hands-on class with some lecture components atop the tallest building in Seattle. Maps and compasses are provided, but bring your own if you prefer.
