On Black Moor above Glossop, not the most appropriate name for the moor today.
View from Black Moor towards Bleaklow in blowing snow.
Another view on Black Moor. There was a strong bitter wind and at this point I was heading right into it being blasted by the blowing snow, not nic eand making it very hard to see.
But being the hero/fool I am I struggled to the top of the moor where I could turn out of the wind and head towards Kinder, seen here looking very impressive.
A closer view of the north edge of Kinder and Fairbrook Naze
The north west end of Kinder from Ashop Head.
On Mills Hill. A figure can be seen making his way down the snow slopes, one of only 2 walkers I met all day.
On the top looking down to Kinder Reservoir.
Heading along the western edge of Kinder Scout.
Stood on the deep ice that is the River Kinder at the top of the downfall.
The downfall which was just sheets of ice in a fierce bitingly cold wind.
Venturing into the arctic Kinder plateau
The peat was frozen solid so that wasnt a problem to walk on, it was the deep drifts and blinding blowing snow that made it a bit tricky. Great fun!
But I managed to get to Kinder Low trig point, a quick photo of which taken while braving the wind before getting back to the shelter of the rocks.
Looking along the south end of Kinder from Kinder Low.
