"The likeness of the ground and mountains on East Falkland island to the Tors and ground on Dartmoor is uncanny."

The route across the North Moor replicates the ground that Andy and Dave yomped and fought over, like no other.

The aim of the yomp is to give you a taste of Dartmoor, which is one of the wildest, most exposed and beautiful areas in Britain.

The yomp is suitable for anyone of average fitness but it must be recognized that the weather can change the moor quickly into a more serious proposition, without warning.

The wind chill factor can change a balmy day into a survival situation in less than 30 minutes. There is very little shelter on the moor.
