MCR #Rambleclub

For the past few months a group of us have started heading out for a hike around the Peak District on a Saturday, most rambles include getting lost; a considerable amount of chub and a glorious view of the Peaks. 

Edale, Peak District

Edale, Peak District 

Our first outing to Edale was probably our most successful, its been the only one we've never actually got lost on. Its a fairly straight forward walk up and over, and we were quite disgruntled at the giant flag stone steps that guided you to the top. We wanted to scramble our way over jagged rocks to reach the peak but it seems the Edale route was a bit of a breeze.

Kinder Scout, Peak District 

After the ease of the previous we decided to set our heights a little higher with our second outing. My main request was that it includes a waterfall, and so it was decided we would tackle Kinder Scout, where we would find 'Peak Districts tallest waterfall' as you can see from the image it was one very unimpressive dried up waterfall but it was an impressive walk and one I would recommend

Ladybower, Peak District

I'd cycled round Ladybower on the mountain bike trails but it was good to do a sunshine filled, bank holiday ramble round the reservoir. We had a few extra ramblers join us, even Ewa the city rat who had rarely even seen a hill let alone walked up one. 

 

Dovestones, Manchester

Another good turn out, this time we stayed close to home with a scramble up the hills around the Dovestone reservoirs. It turned out to be our muddiest, scrambliest ramble yet. With swamp victims in the form of my smashed new iPhone, Ryans face and Andys right foot.
