Since most of us are spending a fair bit of time around the house I figured I'd slowly work my way through the photos and write up some TRs!  This was from a route done in 2019 a few weeks prior to guiding a group doing a National Three Peak event up SP at night, and I wanted the corridor route to be fresh in my mind.  Not to mention it being a route I had wanted to do for some years.  Plenty of pics thrown in.

Thanks April - I had all but forgotten about this trip.  If one good thing has come out of this whole mess it is having A Bloody Good Sort Out, from the garden to loads of old photos I had all but forgotten.  We'll both be doing the same later then, definitely a day to get the wind proof out though!

Thanks beefy - was quite amazed how quickly you lose them when you move from the busier paths. Like a different world.


Karl - it was a lovely one, thank you.  The gill was a bit of a pleasant surprise, definitely wish I had walking sticks on the day for it though!

Lovely pics FMOP, and a cracking day out. I'm another one who hasn't done the Hind Gill route, will have to give it a go. Love the Corridor route.

These little areas you 'randomly find' or stumble in to are by far the most rewarding I think, certainly when the alternatives are heavily developed paths.


The Corridor route was lovely, I actually ended up doing it three times in practically as many weeks last year - I'll post a couple of snaps taken from there from the night route we did, the descent as the morning light appeared was mesmeric.


Mel: Hopefully these can add to your virtual tour  ;D
