Sharon Wearden bagged 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 hiked on November 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Jacobs ladder [with] Friends [weather] mist
Kevin Foster summited 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 Lee has bagged [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..
