Overview

Weekend Map and Compass course held at the Harvard Outing Club Cabin in Pinkham Notch. If you've always wanted to truly learn how to use a compass, this is the course for you. We'll cover maps, compass, navigation, and intentional bushwhacking, and will then apply these skills to hike two actual trail-less mountains. The second (Sunday) hike is optional, and entails a full day of bushwhacking -- possibly finishing as late as 7:00 on Sunday evening. Participation is strongly encouraged because you'll get to apply the skills you've learned.

Joe is one of the Boston Chapter's most experienced and active trip leaders - his summit visits number in the quadruple digits. Included among the many outings he leads each year for the Chapter's Hiking/Backpacking Committee are the single-day Presidential Range traverse on the summer solstice, and the Map & Compass course in the fall. Hike with Joe a few times, and you're likely also to meet Paprika, the hiking hound.

Alex enjoys hiking in all seasons. While best known for fast-paced single day, multi-peak mega-hikes and gnarly back country bushwhacks, he will enjoy sharing his love for the mountains just about anywhere, with hikers at all ability levels.
