Mark and I met up with Adrian and James in Bakewell, on the Thursday, to pick up some essential provisions - Adrian had forgotten the frying pan, and I had my name down for a rather large tart! We arrived at Upper Booth Farm
, late in the afternoon and set up camp in blustery conditions!

The weather promised to be 'changeable' on the Friday, but that didn't stop our intrepid team from setting off on our first ascent of Kinder Scout. We followed Crowden Brook alongside the campsite and up to the top. Mark stopped to paddle in the brook - having dropped the mouthpiece of his water bottle off a bridge.

Saturday was superb! We headed east from the campsite, along the Pennine Way back to its start point opposite The Old Nags Head in Edale. From there we followed the path up Grindsbrook Clough. Adrian and I 'paced ourselves', whilst Mark and James bounded ahead, leaping from rock to rock like mountain goats.
