4th and penultimate hill of the day with Lexi Rue my partners' Labradoodle . We started at Moscar Lodge and climbed Lodge Moor, Edgemount and after sheltering in Wharncliffe woods we climbed Wharncliffe chase and the dropped down into Stocksbridge and walked upto Bolsterstone where i had some soup and a coffee. Took Heads lane but had to shelter from storm next to A fir tree. After 25mins i pulled Lexi out and we went up the trig and the high ground before running back down to West side of Stocksbridge using paths laden with water.Dazingdale25/05/2015

Trig bagging. I helped at the British Orienteering Champs below at Ewden in the days of still using pin punches. I dutifully disqualified a lot of the elite runners for a wrong pin pattern until the organiser agreed something was awry with the codes and all reinstated and a riot avoided.Chris Pearson01/07/1994
