    A cracker last night; Pen-y-Ghent from Horton-in-Ribblesdale in very evocative, quite wintry conditions. Being the old slow-coach I set off at 18.00 via Horton Scar lane. The other four started at 18.45 to go via Bracken Bottom and the Southern Crags, they overhauled Stolly, Hester & dogs on the way up.
    As I arrived at the trig, three lads from Gargrave came up from the crags, our lads were ten minutes behind them.
    After a photo-call, we spotted S & H's lights coming up from the crags as we departed for Horton Scar Lane.
    We overtook the Gargrave lads in the lane, near the slab of bedrock that used to cause a bit of carnage in the 3Ps CX, before it was levelled over with gravel. In the lower section of the lane, we could see S & H's lights descending towards Bracken Bottom.
    A nice drive in snowy conditions to the newly refurbished Station Hotel at Ribblehead for a quick apres-run.

    Being the first Thursday in December my route was a 13th anniversary re-enactment of my first 'Feral Bat Run', away from our regular Tuesday evenings on Beacon Fell

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!
