Route Outline

This is one of the loveliest and wildest Peak District walks on Bleaklow, my favorite 2000ft'er, escaping quickly from the confines of the valleys for the sanctuary of high moors and traversing the main summit ridge. It's a rough, boggy, wild and lonely walk with tricky navigation in places - all that is best about Bleaklow.
