The last run of the winter's warting season took us up Parkin Clough to the top of Win Hill to see the back end of a beautiful sunset in calm and very benign conditions, a contrast to previous weeks. Jupiter, Venus and Mars were visible and the mood was one of jollity and gayness as spring approached. The only notable misery was of course Capt. Harmer, bemoaning the approach of summer and daylight and remembering that we'll have to hammer him up in his coffin for the summer months until September and the start of another glorious warting season! Anyway.... the run continued west along the ridge until someone accused Capt. of being a road runner!! This resulted in a completely pointless detour off Hope Brinks and then back up to the top of the ridge again - woe betide anybody calling the Capt. a road runner! From here, a pleasant descent ensued which eventually took us to the bottom of Jagger's Clough via a pretty woodland path! True warting kicked in at this point as we eventually made it to Crookstone Knoll, although it has to be said that there were a number of "splitters" in the group who insisted on taking their own route against the advice of the Safety Officer! The last whisky, jelly babies and raspberry ruffles of the season were taken here and amidst much grumbling from Capt., we set off back up the ridge in a linear fashion and not the true circular one which is normal on a warts' run. Somewhere along the way, we took the wrong path (Mr Holmes was probably to blame) and ended up running many miles through the woods and then ending up a mile or so from where we were meant to be! But... Mr Holmes had his road run along the  reservoir road, so at least he was happy! See you next Autumn

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