Region: Peak District
Notes: Another popular and classic ascent route onto Kinder, this one, via William Clough. The clough is well walked and there are steps in places where erosion has taken a toll. This was a beautiful clear and and still day and my hill legs were sorely tested by the climb up to the plateau. A descent via Oaken Clough and a visit to the Edale Cross was included. This route allows you to visit two of the trig points on the plateau – The Edge and Kinder Low.
