Swaledale, Yorkshire Dales
March 2015

What a great two days in the Dales, and spring has finally arrived. Saturday was spent learning and applying contour interpretation, compass bearings, distance estimation across the hills, upland environment, route choice and simplification, finishing with a night navigation off the hill. Sunday was consolidation and practise as we headed up onto Fremington Edge via the spectacular Jabz Cave, perhaps the finest viewpoint in the Yorkshire Dales.

Buckden, Yorkshire Dales

A great two days in the Yorkshire Dales, learning and consolidating the skills to plan and follow your own walks in the countryside. On the second day, we decided to head up high and complete a walk that was a little more challenging up onto Buckden Pike then across to the War Memorial and down to Starbotton. Good handrails for most of the way (walls and valleys) meant pretty straightforward navigation, but the views were amazing!
