17 05 2008 - The South Pennine Challenge - (A PERSONAL RECORD)

(NOT THE LAKE DISTRICT MOUNTAINS)

Mytholmroyd 7.40am and waiting for someone

 

Here he comes at last

 

Looking down on Mytholmroyd

 

Where's the sun?

 

Stoodley Pike in the distance

 

He can't stop dancing

 

Summit of Manshead Hill

 

Cairn on Manshead Hill

 

Greenwood Clough

 

A glimpse of Baitings Reservoir

 

The bottom of Greenwood Clough

 

Stile council

 

Baitings Reservoir

 

The first checkpoint near the reservoir

 

Climbing towards Rishworth Moor

 

These inept walkers had missed the left turn across the footbridge and had to return sheepishly

 

That's the way to do it!

 

 

The Aiggin Stone - an ancient way marker on the old packhorse road between Rochdale and Halifax

 

Littleborough in mist

 

Nearing the A58

 

The second checkpoint after 12.5 miles and the end of the challenge for me - though I did walk another 6 miles back down into Mytholmroyd via Crag Vale (after a pint of course!)

 

Refreshments near The White House

 

Along the canal

 

Some flat walking at last

 

And then some more climbing

 

Higher and higher

 

But still no sunshine

 

21.5 miles done

 

And some still have enough strength to eat at the end
