Gold DofE training hiking expedition South Wales

Leave a comment

L6 Gold training expedition to South Wales: July 4-7.  South Wales western Brecons.  5 groups practiced navigation techniques and backpacked across the Brecon ridge to return to Dan Yr Ogof.  Weather was cool and a thunderstorm kept groups lower down and off the ridge on July 5.  After issues with kit (some bringing insufficient cold weather gear after a hot spell in the SE), groups coped well with the varying conditions.  Groups need to thoroughly prepare for their qualifying venture in August ensuring all their kit is properly organised and they are ready for the challenge.  Check training pages on this blog.
