Quiet climb to the blasted plateau of Kinder Low across the broad moors and hills to the west. Flat, marshy and a bit dull for the mile or two after Brown Knoll; otherwise a fine walk.

Then a very short climb to Eldon Hill and its spectacular (but uncapturable) hole - a nice grassy farmland hill that feels a lot lower than its 470m, and a lot further away from the Edale hills that it borders.
