    Xmas Dales 2 Ridges 19 miles

    At some point over Xmas/New Year I am going to have another trot round this route (from Dent, full Whernside ridge and then full Gragareth ridge back). Ideally I will be able to see somthing this time as the views should be fantastic when not blocked by mist, so a cold, crisp and clear day is hoped for followed by a pint or 2 of somthing tasty in the Sun Inn with some chips. I know 1 or 2 people contacted me to say they fancied the route so if anyone has any dates in mind and fancies it, we could perhaps get a few going...........if not I'll go on my own and eat ALL the chips!

    Yes that looks a good route. I am quite limited on dates over Xmas so will leave it and see what others prefer and come along if I am free.

    What are your shifts like over the festive season Ady?

    I have the 30th free - well from 10am onwards for a trot out

    I'm away for Xmas but might could be free for a run out around 28-30th Dec. I'll keep an eye on the thread as it looks a good route

    30th is actually looking like it might be the best date for me - am in work a few days over Xmas (and off the week before & after Xmas!). Think it took me 3.25 ish last time out so we should maybe allow 4 hours ish......? Could do with starting somewhere between 9-11am I guess.

    Laurence gets collected at 10 so I can't leave here until then sadly but if I can make it then I will! As I say I'm free all day I have no home time curfew so a late start suits although I realise that's not good for all.

    Failing that I'll treat myself to that hill rep session up big end or something!
