Public Transport based scramble with David Bratley.
Assuming the weather holds, this should be an exciting day of scrambling, starting with Ringing Roger, then onto the top of Grindsbrook, before hitting the highlight of the day, Blackden clough, a beautiful place on the north side of Kinder, and quite hidden, lovely waterfalls and exciting scrambling, with clean rock steps (a little slippery if wet), and large boulders towards the top).
This walk will move at a reasonably fast pace and there are very few bail out points.
