A Dodgy Compass!

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. 

Sierra Nevada Guides are a company of qualified International Mountain Leaders operating in Spain’s Sierra Nevada Mountains and Alpujarra.
