Strictly in the interests of gender equality (where were you Mr Cole?), leadership of this evening's Southern Wart from Hathersage Swimming Pool was assumed by Ms P. Collier. Drunk with the power thus assumed, Penny proceeded to frog march us nigh on ten miles around the highways and byways of Eyam and Offerton Moors, at the most frightening of paces, before appearing to lose her sense of direction briefly somewhere near Shatton radio mast. This afforded Lucy a brief opportunity to lead us to pasture over a more familiar contour of tussocks and fallen bracken. The webmaster, meanwhile, had got his excuses in early, suggesting that the absence of a belt for his mini-rucksack would lead to flapping and air-drag; Moz, by contrast, employed a series of more or less ineffective tactics to slow the pace, whilst young Mr Bollinger, on sabbatical from recent travels, gasped occasionally for breath. All in all then, a very particular wart. Perhaps the kindest thing I can say about it is that Cap'n Harmer would have absolutely hated it whilst Penny, rather suspiciously, was nowhere to be seen at pub's end. Evidently she'd appreciated that she may have set back the cause of gender equality within the club by another ten years at the very least.

Meanwhile, on the other side..

Northern Warts Weds 12 March - Great run tonight under a clear and starry sky! 10 Dark Peakers and the faint glow of IDP in the distance on one of his legendary night nav courses.
Starting from the A628 we headed along to Lady Cross then to the cairn around Round Hill. From there over to Barrow Stones via Barrow Clough. Bearings were taken but the moonlight guided us fine.
To a sheepfold (large enough for 3 sheep) (and it wasn't on my map..) at Swains Greave and some giant groughs to Swains head. A couple of white hares escaped the studs.
We handrailed Far Small Clough to the Trans Pennine Trail back to the road.
Refreshments were then consumed in the Dog and Partridge.
Highlight of the evening was having a 'blackout' and stargazing for a few moments. I think we may have even re-named a few stars!

There is a map of this run, view the post to see it
