Bleaklow Scramble Report 21st January 2024

Eight humans and two very intrepid sheepdogs got better than expected weather conditions for our scramble up Torside Clough today. Most of the snow and ice had melted overnight so the biggest risk was wet feet whilst boulder hopping across the stream. The two dogs by contrast enthusiastically plunged through the pools and cascades – deserving honorary membership of the club outdoor swimming group!
After emerging from the clough we had a breezy walk to Bleaklow Head. Some less than competent navigation by the meet leader had has plouging through heather and wandering along groughs until we regained the Pennine Way and completed our return journey just as Storm Isha was approaching.
Thanks to everyone who braved the weather warnings to participate in a sociable and not too strenuous day out. Paul.
