Walk Number 643

Walk Notes:

My first proper hill walk since fracturing my metatarsal in December last year. Clag on the tops with a biting wind for the duration of the walk, but the mist cleared as I began to descend back to the car. Still some snow patches lying on the top, but nothing too tricky. This isn’t a new ascent route onto Kinder as I’ve been up by William Clough a couple of times before, but I wanted the option to be able to abort at any time if my foot began to feel off – but it feels pretty good post-walk, just a little achey!

Walk Number 182

Walk 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.
