This time with Paul Little & Greg Patterson - its ages since I've seen either of them so it was great to be out again. Today was a bit different as it was the turn of a group who had chosen to do a day of scrambling rather than just participate in a sample.
We set off from the bridge close to Great Wood car park and progressed well beyond the point at which the sample activity finished concluding the scrambling section with a roped climb up the first of the substantial waterfalls. At this point we stepped out of the gill and ate lunch amongst the midges alongside the path up to Walla Crag. After lunch we continued up to the summit for excellent views on - did I mention - another fine sunny day! The kids didn't want to leave the top of the crag and we must have stayed up there for a good half hour before re-tracing our steps down to the car park. A short journey down to Kettlewell gave the opportunity to skim stones & have a paddle in the sunshine!!
