    CMC Thursday Walk 9 July 2015 Report

    6 of us started from Barber Booth in good sunny weather that
    lasted all day. Along the road to Upper Booth where we took
    the path up Crowden Clough, pausing for a coffee break near
    the top. The path is becoming quite eroded in places. After
    the seclusion of the clough we topped out on the edge of
    Kinder Scout among Duke of Edinburgh groups, dogs, and other
    assorted walkers. We followed the edge path to Swine’s Back
    where we found a delightful grassy perch for our picnic
    lunch. An unidentified flying object was observed to the
    east. After some discussion we decided that it was probably
    a drone. We dropped down on the Pennine Way to the top of
    Jacob’s Ladder and up the other side of the pass to the top
    of Brown Knoll where an “Eros” impersonation was performed
    on top of the trig point. The path down the ridge was as
    usual a little boggy but nobody got wet feet. We reached
    Chapel Gate passing several more D of E parties before
    heading back down to Barber Booth. 7.7 miles; 1450 feet of
    ascent. Moving average speed 2.5 mph according to my new GPS
    Navigator (Garmin Etrex 20).
