Attack Point

An attack point is a feature that is relatively close to your target but is more significant and easier to find.
In the example shown the task is to go from point A to the bothy. The knoll is fairly close to the bothy and will be easier to find. Locate the knoll first and then head in a new direction to the bothy. The knoll is the attack point in this example.






Important: Participation Statement
