Notes: A day of changed plans, spontaneity and compromise. An early slip, hurting my knee, put paid to some of our plans and made for a great day in the end. A diversion into Longnor saw us digging into a second breakfast, before heading out to the hills. Skipping Chrome Hill, we modified the route to take in Parkhouse instead, which Matt climbed and I declined due to the steepness of the descent and my knee, but the diversion pointed us at Earl Sterndale and the Quiet Woman pub and a couple of well deserved pints (but no food). The afternoon's Dales were wonderful and we eventually compromised on a river-side pitch, which was also great!
