NNAS Gold Training Course - Swaledale

15th & 16th March 2014

The high moors and fells above Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. 

Challenging conditions with 40 - 50mph winds, dense mist at times and complex terrain. Great for learning nav skills though. 

This is as challenging as navigation gets, but very rewarding.

The mist photo - we followed a bearing for 1.6km across the moors into 40mph winds with peat hags and deep groughs (water-cut channels through the peat), and hit the Trig Point bang on!
