A few people had dropped out before the walk - we missed y'all - so the final cast (as in the photo above) was Miko, Helen, Jim, me, and Dave.
It was my first walk on Bleaklow and dispelled the hill's reputation as a depressingly drab water-logged wasteland - on this hazy sunny autumn day it looked magnificent and to me the routes across seemed much more welcoming and easier going than the neighbouring Kinder plateau.
I also found the aircraft wreckage spread over the hillside sombre and moving.
Here's our route on Strava - it should be visible without logging in
Yup, that opens here - thanks Jim..
We set off at 10am and got back to the cars about 4.30 with approx 90 minutes stopped so I guestimated the moving time as roughly 5 hours. When I traced out the route on Where's The Path website it came out as 10.6 miles.
Thanks Dave for your post proposing some autumn walks - it seems to have re-invigorated OM meets
