Kinder via Crookstone Hill

A lovely sunny day, not especially warm, but dry. Another ascent route up onto Kinder and a visit to the Madwoman's Stones which I don't think I've ever been to before. I decided to cut across the hags to the trig point on Edale Moor, which has a huge surround of slabs now, many of which are already under water. A lovely walk around the edge of Kinder and a knee-cracking descent down Gate Side Clough.
