Kevin Foster hiked on April 5th, 2019 [from/via/route] Old Glossop [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny, high cloud, fresh breeze. - After spending the best part of a year bagging the mountain tops of the North Pennines and Northumberland it was a pleasant change to head south to The Peak District. I have done little walking in this area so I was excited and apprehensive at the same time. The apprehension, based on some negative reports I'd read about Bleaklow, was unfounded. Maybe it was because the top was a lot drier than I expected after a relatively dry winter and I was lucky with the weather but I have to say that the paths and route finding for the best part were fairly dry and easy walking. The views as I climbed over Cock Hill back towards the towering skyline of Manchester in the far distance were superb. Not so much the views from Bleaklow Head itself but it was fun to clamber over the Wain Stones and take photos from all angles.
