the extra time was taken when on the penine way after I left the wall, as the terrain was treacherously boggy and had to circumnavigate large frozen bog patches and hope I never fell through them.
This was an overnight walk.

bothy to Bardon Mill
It also was my first Bothy experience, and will be my last for some time. not an experience I enjoyed or want to do again any time soon!!!

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
