Kevin Foster conquered 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.
