A cool dry morning as we set off for the Peaks, our target was Kinder Downfall :D

We parked near Barber Booth and set off at 10am towards Upper Booth and the walk up the waterfall of Crowden Clough

I have done lots of climbing and scrambling with the gang but always very wary

Steady as you go
We reached the top of the waterfall and reached the peat boggy area

Were you up there this weekend, Sue?

I was on the other side of Kinder doing the Mam Tor ridge and Edale to Win Hill. If you were out on Sunday I missed you by just a few hundred yards!
