Kettlewell to Buckden Pike

Another walk in this years series of #MicroAdventures. A cold, dark and windy day in the Dales, whereas everywhere else seemed to be warm and sunny, one of the best days of the year apparently, But not for us. Excellent climb up behind Buckden via the Beck and eventually found a reasonably sheltered pitch behind a wall. Wind rose in the night and rain came down hard.
