    Hi Swoop,

    I'd like to join the recce run on Friday, if you don't mind. Can't help with any course knowledge though, it'll be my first time on the second half of the course.

    And I've got another recce scheduled for the 17th/18th as well so if no one objects I'd like to join in there as well.


    Cheers,

    Chris.

    It seems a long way off, but let's go for Sunday 18th Feb for a reccy for anyone who is interested. Meet up in Edale. I haven't yet done either half of the route other than odd bits in the past, but if some of you are doing the second half this Friday, lets go for the first half in February. Alternatively we could split up and meet up again in the pub afterwards. Details to be confirmed nearer the time.

    Another possibility was suggested by always injured: Starting at Mam Nick and doing the second half followed by the first half but missing out the start/finish section between Edale and Ringing Roger.
    Mind you that would be over 19 miles and would take me well over 4 hours at recce pace.
    Better get this Friday out of the way first especially as I've just come down with a cold!

    Re: edale skyline

    Hi everyone

    this question may be too technical but my mapping software tells me that it's quicker on the last leg (Grindslow Knoll), to go down to Grindsbrook then coutour across with a slight climb back up to Ringing Roger, than to follow the track back towards Kinder and then continue the routine circuit. For walking it estimates 38min as against 54min and the climb is not much different. Is it allowed? Is it really quicker? has anyone ever done it?
    I know, I know - I should go and find out!
