As some readers will be aware, TGO Challenge legend, Alan Sloman, arranges a pre-TGOC walk every year as a warm up to the Challenge itself. Covid interrupted these for a couple of years, but things have now got back to normal, so the Daunder as it is known was revived. There’s not much of a story to tell, so I’ll just post some pictures. This year we went to the Yorkshire Dales starting at Dent then walking to Ingleton via Whernside. On the second day we walked back to Dent via Ingleborough.

All in all a fine trip. The second day was quite taxing, but enjoyable. We were lucky with with the weather althought there was a strong cold wind, which is why we skipped a wild camp. It’s a long time since I’ve walked in the Yorkshire Dales. I think I’ll go back and do a bit more exploring.
