Had a spare day so decided to drive up to Edale to walk around some of the lesser peaks. Which almost seems unfair as starting with Brown Knoll they're just as good as their more famous cousins. Approached Brown Knoll from Jacob's Ladder, turning left at the point you'd normally turn right to go up Kinder ScoutAltheus15/08/2018

K From Edale via Mam Nick; Rushup Edge and then the relatively new slabbed path across what is currently an extremely soggy Brown Knoll to the trig. Without the slabs this would have probably have been a flounder through peat. Return to Edale via Jacobs Ladder and the Pennine Way. Edale Country Day and Fell Race today so place was bustling.crazy11/06/2017
Climbed with theDev as the third of three summits which included South Head and Mount Famine on a ten mile round out of Sparrowpit. Ledge at the base of the trig point made for an excellent seat.
