Hob Hole 2 August
Having signed up for Daves's walk I ended up leading the 2nd group. We walked over Great Hograh Moor with fine views of Common Dale and Westerdale and the 1st group way in the distance to a little oasis at Great Hograh Beck where we took a break.
Mark Ireland, Andrew Hogarth and I were all set for a classic hut to hut ski tour in the Silvretta Alps on the Austria / Switzerland border. Everything was booked and even the weather was looking settled and very promising. Then coronavirus got in the way.
