    I did a variation on this route on Saturday. Starting from Hayfield rather than Edale, then missing out the descent to the YHA and climb of Jagger's Clough because I wanted to be back in time for the rugby! (I also went straight up Ringing Roger, instead of Grindsbrook).

    It was a great day out and I measured it at about 35km and 2000m ascent, so shaved a fair bit off the full stats (which I think is about 43km and 2500m). Took me about 5.5 - 6hrs.

    might join you for half on Tuesday, just to get out of the house. Snake Inn layby is a good place to start. If you go for the full thing then Edale and it's shop makes a good half way stop.
