Stanage "Popular End" - 2 Oct 2011

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2011-10-15

Paul’s trip to Dow Crag in the lakes was relocated to Stanage in order to avoid the rain which was heading South during the day. Sandra, Carol, Callum, Harry, Phil, Paul and I headed off down the A1 circa 8.15hrs. The persistent rain eventually subsided and was replaced with hazy sunshine.
