A long walk up Jacob's Ladder and across Kinder Scout, descending via Golden Clough.
Distance 14.2 km
Start at the car park at Edale and head up to the village and then take the start of the Pennine Way across to Upper Booth Farm. Go thorugh the farm and take the road and then the path to Jacob's Ladder. Climb the ladder and then continue up (seemingly forever) passing Edale Rocks eventually arriving at Kinder Low. Then head for Noe Stool, the paths can be indestinct, but in good visibility it is farly easy to navigate across. Then follow the path towards Crowden Tower, eventually arriving at the top of Grindsbrook Clough. We then headed towards Ringing Roger via Upper Tor and Nether Tor and as it was getting late we descended then down through Golden Clough into Grindsbrook Booth and then back through Edale to the car park. There are many different routes to adapt the walk, although in poor visibilty it is easy to get lost on the plateau. Ask me how I know!
