From Kings tree at the top of the Howden res road 7 of us made our way up the delightful and deserted linch clough. As we reached the flatter rather featureless heathery moorland at the top and in increasingly poor visibility, we missed the rain gauge but saw a white mountain hare and a rather interesting orange fungus on a pale green lichen (or was it algae?) A snowy lower small clough made for a pleasant descent to the shooting cabins where we made use of the shelter, complete with plastic chairs, for lunch. Only a swollen upper derwent river now lay between us and the broad track back to kings tree.
Thanks to all who joined in.
