After the very wet, windy and albeit bleak recce, with the absolute troopers Vince and Lesley Rodgers, we had mixed feelings for what our first guided walk would bring. However, we were graced with stunning crisp, blue skies and the wind forecast, was none existent. An absolute winner of a day!
We would like to thank and congratulate all of those that joined us, family, friends, new friends and the trio of dogs that made up an awesome team! We aim to find adventure and make adventure accessible to all. We certainly achieved that goal last weekend.
We set quite a challenging first walk but everyone rose to the occasion and stormed it! From the scramble steps of Grindsbrook Clough to boulder hopping around the peat bog on the Kinder Plateau. For some, however, it was unfortunately unavoidable! Jason and his Chocolate lab Finn took one for the team, demonstrating which way NOT to go and showed us just how deep the bog could be!
Overall we walked a solid 8 miles, a steep up and down but a varied route, stunning views and great company!
Our next walk will be on Sunday 26th November starting in Grindleford and heading up through Padley Gorge. It will be a shorter distance of 6 miles, due to shorter days and it will be slightly easier terrain to accommodate the weather if it is not so kind but either way, the walk will offer a beautiful mixture of river, moorland and woodland and if the gang from last weekend are anything to go by it will be a good laugh!
We have already got 11 booked on so places are going fast! So get in touch via our contact page to sign up!
