The Northern Warts surpassed themselves this evening, making a special trip to Andy Plummer's Huntsman Arms in Thurlstone, only to find the landlord away on holiday. Perhaps next year we should warn him in advance of our plans. Having waited unnecessarily for Ash to fail to materialise - neither late nor at all - we were treated to a diet of muck, tracks and pot-holed tarmac ("very dangerous", Master Harmer opined). To be fair, there was also some heather, gorse, bracken and a quarry or two, but as Dave B observed, it became clear over the course of the run why no-one from PFPR deigned to join us - they evidently know better than to do anything so foolish as to run from Penistone and environs. A fine session in the pub afterwards nonetheless, a select but decidedly stalwart gathering, and good to see Jan and Martin too. Jan's forthcoming Streak in the Peak, prior to his NZ adventure, has clearly grabbed the imagination of a number of Warts ... see you all there a week on Saturday?

A ne'er to be repeated run, well certainly not in my lifetime, at least. The first part up Hartcliffe Hill went well despite Dave Holmes attempting to lead it and not having a bleedin' clue where he was going. The second part went less well as we wondered through muddy fields looking for non-existent footpaths. Tom achieved the dubious accolade of reaching the highest point - a huge pile of shite on the hilltop, needless to say we avoided him after this. Otherwise ok, the pub is good! The previous paragraph is a pitiful attempt to deflect blame. I knew exactly where I was going as I approached the top of Hartcliffe Hill, i.e. the top of Hartcliffe Hill, (which Chris and I had just identified on the map and agreed would be our next port of call). We would have achieved the objective had Mr Barber not called me back and resumed the night's predominant theme of running round in clueless circles. A curious evening, neatly encapsulated by Tom's ascent of the pile of shite. Strangely enjoyable though, mainly for the comedy value. Quote of the night from Dave Bollington after the umpteenth moment of indecision from Chris: "Turning right at that junction would have been so 2010." The pub was brilliant; let's find an excuse to go back, but preferably after doing some running. Clearly my moments of profound reflection were deliberately misinterpreted as indecision! All I was attempting to achieve was the maximum amount of pleasure within the narrow constraints of the area. Here was I just just trying to please everybody, do I get any thanks......?

The Southern Warts had a long evening out, but not a lot of climb and mostly runnable. A remarkable tournout of 14, including Ash,  given the geographical split. Track now there, showing our small 360 error, perhaps that's when the compass came out (actually no, that was much later)...
