Join us for some stunning views and atmosphere as we go through the much loved valley of Edale and have a day of being high up and ridge walking.  This is a personal favourite of mine and the experience never ceases to amaze me.

From the village, we head over the well known Pennine Way, through the valley and up Jacobs Ladder.  Jacobs Ladder is something you never forget once you have done it, but you will definitely feel a sense of achievement from getting to the top.  We head up to an approximate height of just over 2000 feet (600m) and spend most of the day with fantastic views (weather permitting).   

From the top of Jacobs Ladder, we walk along the edge of Kinder Scout (we will not be going through it), passing Crowden Tower, Grindslow Knoll, through Upper Torr before we head down hill passing "Heardman's Plantation"  and finally back to the village.  

The whole walk should take approximately 4.5 - 5 hours plus lunch break and stopping time, and we will be stopping roughly half way for lunch. 

Your First ODL Walk Event?

Attending your first event with OutdoorLads might feel daunting. What will happen, who will be there, and what can you expect?

We know that new members in particular like to know in advance more about what an OutdoorLads event will be like. 

If this is your first ODL event, you should check out the information designed specifically for you on the My First Event page on the ODL website.

Weather conditions

We may need to change the walk or postpone it in the event of very severe weather.  I will let you know as soon as I can if this looks likely.

Is it dog friendly? 

Dogs are welcome but please note and abide by the Countryside Code (  Parts of this walk are quite steep/awkward so be sure your dog is OK with that. Please also remember not everyone loves dogs as much as you do so please be mindful of other members.

New Members

Please feel free to join this as your first OutdoorLads event. If you have any questions then feel free to message me, or go to the "My First Event" section under "About Us".
