About the Event
A more challenging walking and low grade scrambling day meet amongst the Cloughs and Southern Edge of Kinder Scout. The walk is around 10 miles with ascents of Crowden Clough and Grindsbrook Clough with about 800 mtrs of height gain.
The scrambling is mainly small boulder hopping/pulling, with a very short section of low grade 1, up stream beds. In inclement weather it is likely to be somewhat wet/slippy.
There is an alternative path, avoiding the scrambling, to Crowden Tower where the Southern Edge path can be traversed to the head of Crowden Clough instead.
There are options to cut the walk short on the second of three visits to Edale.
