Gisborough Moor

Had a walk up Gisborough Moor today, (SOTA G/TW-003). Parked near Hutton (NZ597141) and walked through the forest. There was thick snow on all the forest roads and on top of the hill the snow was up to my knees in places. Left the forest at NZ615137 which was a bad idea, it was harder walking on the moorland than along the forest roads.
Set up the gear by the trigpoint as this is only 5 metres lower than the proper summit but about 2km closer. The hole in the trigpoint hasn't been blocked so I could put the pole in that. Made 5 QSOs on 2m FM (2 were with people in the same house).
