Carried same kit as leading a group in the mountains plus radio (see TTT search team). Day was fine mostly fine with a cold NE'ly wind, light rain for the last hour. Due to a shortage of operators I also covered the checkpoint at Rocking Hall which is a remote walk in location, therefore I walked there first, paused to operate the checkpoint and then joined the sweep team once it reached us.higlett07/04/2019

Considerable nostalgia, going over Beamsley Beacon and Old Pike(qv for log in 1976) and later the old milestone on Long Ridge, these last done in 1976. This summer's almost as dry, and the new path to Round Hill was very clear; the bridleway down towards March Ghyll Resr was easy enough to follow, the returned to the starting point at Langber via the Long Ridge. We never did Round Hill on our Beamsley Beacon walks in the 1970s; it gave another good walk in a fine area for interesting moorland walking. Fine and hot and humid, surprisingly long distance views.pwheeler23/07/2018
