Nicky Kelly walked up on August 9th, 2020 [from/via/route] D296 Jacobs ladder from Edale [with] Myself [weather] Very windy at the top but the weather stayed sunny all day

Andy Buxton climbed during August, 1972 [from/via/route] Glossop! [with] Martyn Park, Jim Lapworth, Dave Ashford [weather] Sunny, dry, hot (and still boggy) - Too long a tale to tell here...

Angela Moroney bagged during May, 2018 [with] YMC

Gill Bates hiked on May 16th, 2016 [from/via/route] from Edale

Sharon Wearden summited on January 25th, 2020 [from/via/route] Kinder Rd [with] Neil, Alex, Matt, Nathan & Lewis [weather] Dry, cold and clear but with a mist threatening to come in.

Tina Brindley conquered on November 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Jacobs ladder [with] Friends [weather] mist

Kevin Foster scaled on April 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Upper Booth. [with] By myself. [weather] High thin cloud cover with a fresh Easterly breeze (making long distance views quite hazy and a bit nippy on top). - Remarkably I had never visited Kinder Scout before today but this walk, a kind of 'Best of Kinder', certainly made up for lost time. The actual top marked by a small pile of stones is a bit arbitrary and is some 50 yards or so west of point 636. At only 3 metres lower the OS trig point on Kinder Low makes a far more fitting summit. Aside from a long road trip to Devon it's The Lakes all the way for me now although I have to say I have really enjoyed my days out in The High Peak.

Michael Martin walked up on August 28th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walk 50 walk the way in a day [with] Colin Saunders, Robert Mitchell and Garry Roberts [weather] Cloudy with sunny spells

Ken Davies climbed on March 17th, 2018 [from/via/route] Edale [with] Bev [weather] Very wet ,windy and cold

Margaret Richards bagged on November 7th, 2011 [from/via/route] kinder scout from Hayfield [with] Don [weather] wet and misty - got a bit lost
