From there we cross the snake and climb (steeply to start with) past Rowlee Farm to Lockerbrook Farm.  Now for the second of our three descents, initially fast and flowing, it steepens shortly after we enter the trees eventually kicking us out next to the Derwent reservoir. A quick ride takes us to Fairholmes carpark.

We then have an option:-

From Fairholmes car park and after a few kilometers along the side of Ladybower we climb, but it's rather steep at the start (we will all end up pushing), but this soon eases to a nice technical climb to Whinstone Lee Toor. The stunning views over Ladybower, along with the brilliant fast moorland descent, make the slog up the hill more than worth it!
