Distance - 6.15 miles
Ascent - 459 metres
Ok I will admit at the start that this wasn't quite the full route planned! The plan was to walk to Kinder Downfall and back, the weather was due to be rubbish and the idea was that this would give me a good walk whilst sticking to a good path for navigation and sinking. As it was, my legs never got warmed up after yesterdays walk and in the back of my head I had the idea of going home early and taking the tent down in the dry.

Disappointedly the farm shop/café at Upper Booth was closed, so no ice cream! The path steadily climbs towards Jacobs ladder along a mix of farm tracks and bridleway. As expected in the area the views are great and it's fairly quiet at this time of year. I was however trudging along, not really getting into my stride with legs of lead.
|Possibly the muddiest section, remarkable with the weather.|
