Amy and I decided to go out for a walk today, we have a fantastic covering of snow here in Derbyshire and the weather was perfect. We headed off towards Edale at about 10am and made it there in reasonable time considering the roads were pretty bad. We narrowly avoided an accident near Hathersage, A transit van in front of us spun out of control and nearly hit a bus.. whoops.
We parked down near the train station at Edale as it was full near The Old Nags Head Inn. We then walked back up past the pub, up the road, over the bridge and off towards Grindsbrook Clough.
The weather really was great, a touch on the cold side but we had plenty of layers on so it didn’t bother us too much. The wind was really strong and icy when we reached the top of Grindsbrook Clough so we decided to head back down the way we had came.
Amy really enjoyed her first winter mountain walk and she can’t wait to go again, fingers crossed when the warmer weather arrives Lisa, Amy and I will spend some weekends up in the Lake District and climb a few more fells there. Why not have a look at the video below I did last winter.
This is a video of my recent winter wander up Kinder Scout “Kinder Scout – Grindsbrook Clough – Winter Scramble”. I go via Grindsbrook Clough and it was a great day to be out climbing in the snow. the river at Grindsbrook Clough was almost completely iced over near the top so it was a nice little challenge getting to the top.
