The Nidderdale LDWA holds two annual Challenge walks each year. To make sure each route is still accessible and all of the checkpoint are still available, the club does a Marshall's Walk a few weeks before the actual events.
The Blubberhouses 25 route has a lot of memories for me, as this was the VERY FIRST EVENT I ever did in the UK. Actually, I had only been here a week! So this walk introduced me to route finding, map reading, high winds, fells, moors, bogs, dales, more bogs, and mud. Oh, and the joys of required kit....
