Peak Assault is Hertfordshire Scouts’ most challenging competition organised for members of the Scout Association aged 14 and over and is now in its 43rd year. The competitors must use their orienteering skills, physical ability and mental strength to navigate their way across unforgiving terrain ‘clipping’ as many checkpoints as they can within the allotted time. The competitors must also carry all the equipment they will need for a night on the hills.
