Another epic! We started off in cold but fairly clear conditions, with that sense of deja vu from last week's run! However, instead of the Boundary stones, we battled our way up to Black Holes with the occasional snow flurry to cool us down! From here, we slogged through the knee deep heather with the occasional burst of running to remind us that we are finely tuned athletes, up to Lost Lad. Mr Hakes was now a distant light off the back of the group, so we duly abandoned him to his fate. A fine bit of running was had from here, with a direct line towards Gravy cabin via a precipitous cliff both up and down, warting at its best. Whisky and raspberry ruffles were partaken at the cabin in the relative calm. Berrister's Tor and Abbey Brook were next and about this time, the snow began with a vengeance turning into a white out by the time we had ascended Abbey Brook. Now...a point must be made about a certain "leader" who gave mixed messages! I distinctly heard a mention of Cartledge Flats as the next "checkpoint" and so a group of 5 of us set out for this in the freezing, whiteout conditions and stood around on the verge of imminent demise waiting for the others whom, it transpired had missed out the summit and opted for the easier route (what are the warts coming to?) aiming directly for the finish. Anyway...we managed to meet up with them after some cursing and went direct to the pub, in the now very bright moonlight.

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