The numbers are UTM reference numbers for determining position on the relevant map sheet(s). The route described assumes a basic knowledge of topographic map and compass navigation and, of course, the ability of the hiker to follow a route described as a sequence of UTM reference points. The following web site gives a good explanation: http://earth-info.nga.mil/GandG/coordsys/g rids/universal_grid_system.html
