Exercise Return - Yorkshire Dales

Exercise Return challenges our Year 13 students to climb the three major peaks in the Yorkshire Dales - Ingleborough (724m), Pen-y-Ghent (694m) and Whernside (736m). As this is a military exercise MTP is worn, 24hr rations are carried each the day and some meals are cooked on the hill. Almost all of the students complete the 24 mile challenge conquering Pen-y-Ghent on Friday afternoon followed by Whernside and Ingleborough on Saturday. Overnight accommodation is provided at Wathgill Camp near Catterick.
