Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Kinder Scout Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Kinder Scout

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

Kevin Foster climbed 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 bagged 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 hiked on March 17th, 2018 [from/via/route] Edale [with] Bev [weather] Very wet ,windy and cold

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

Simon Rutstein conquered on July 21st, 2017 [from/via/route] Bowden Bridge Car Park, William Clough, Kinder Downfall, Kinder Scout, Kinder Low, Edale Cross, Coldwell Clough

Michael Lee has scaled [from/via/route] We took the path from Snake Inn (Snake Path) and followed it along Ashop Clough, crossing a bridge I seem to remember has something to do with Sheffield Uni? We continued up Black Ashop Moor on Snake path to Ashop Head where we turned left onto the Pennine way and onto Kinder itself. The picture you said was at Sandy Heys fits that exactly! We proceeded to Kinder Downfall and then after a break, headed straight across the top of Kinder at it's narrowest point to the waterfall at the top of Fair Brook to scramble down Fair Brook Naze following close to the river back to A57 and Snake Inn for a drink! [with] Jill and friends [weather] Sunny - Done this one three times, various weathers..

Darin Torrance walked up on May 15th, 2018 [from/via/route] Bowden bridge [weather] Sunny hot

Anthony Scott climbed on February 11th, 2018 [from/via/route] Hope [with] Johnny Cowley [weather] 2 degrees and huge snow shower on top. Windy too!

Andy Jakob bagged during August, 1985 [from/via/route] pennine way last day [with] Edith
