Edale - Great Ridge - Optional Accommodation

0 places left
7 people waitlisted
The Great Ridge sits on the Dark Peak - White Peak border and makes for a superb half day walk. This walk climbs up from Edale then embraces the full 4 mile long ridge before descending again. As would be expected from such a walk the views are stunning throughout.
I’ll be staying in the YHA in Edale (which is also the walk start location) on the Friday & Saturday night so feel free to join. We'll meet in the lounge area at 7pm each evening with more info nearer the time. Possibly if other leaders join we can do alternative routes. There are several discount codes around that will get you up to 15% off.

Make sure you have plenty of water & fluids. A flask of something hot is always good on a cold day.
