Sadly, circumstances conspired against me this weekend. Something came up on Sunday morning which ruled out my overnighter.
Probably for the best… I sloshed around Edale for five hours on Saturday and the weather was miserable. A vicious wind tore across the Mam Tor Ridge and the valley filled with water.
My poor old car ‘held its nose’ as I tentatively drove through minor lakes on the way back to Bamford. I will get to test my new shelter at some point, I guess.
On a positive note, I gave my back a proper test with full pack and, apart from a bit of stiffness, things went well.
