Ave Speed: 2.5 mph

Region: Peak District
Notes: Not technically an ascent of the Downfall, as I cut left and ascended the steep slope beside the waterfall, this is the route one would use to get to the foot of the waterfall and try the tricky scramble up the face. Best done after a dry spell so the water is not running fast and probably also not during strong winds as the up-rush to the summit is notorious.
