First report for some time, a glorious day and great walk on Whernside, brought back wonderful memories of our Three Peaks Challenge done for a local hospice, a rainy day but wonderful experience. Today was great and there was plenty of fellow walkers as we parked near to the superb Ribblehead Viaduct.

Great pics and a good report, It was a nice day on Sunday. I was on Great knoutberry fell, a few miles north of you, on Sunday collecting another Hewitt. Coincidently I met a party who were on there way up and one of the group was of similar appearance to yourself which got me thinking "was that Susan?" Obviously it wasn't, but still strange to think you were all walking so close at hand.
