The Kinder Downfall
I had been looking forward to this one for a while. The Kinder downfall is classed by the FRA as a B medium race and is part of the Hayfield Fell Races.
Kinder Scout, the 600m(sounds higher if you say 2000ft) high lump of Gritstone and peat that is the highest point in Derbyshire. Technically it can be classed as a mountain, some would disagree but I don't care what they call it. Being a Derby lad it's the nearest thing to home turf for me and I love it.
Martin Griffiths has written a fine account of our trot up, along and back down from Kinder http://alwayssearchingfor.blogspot.com/2010/04/kinder-downfall-96m1970-sunday-25th-apr.html
Thanks Martin, So I will leave it at that and let the photos tell the rest.
Still smiling, it must be early on
