6th May 2018 - Crowden Clough and the head of Edale
On the road to Upper Booth
and then it's onto the path up Crowden Clough
The prominent crag in the middle of the photo is Crowden Tower
Great scenery as I continue uphill

I'll briefly follow that bridleway to reach the path to Brown Knoll

Looking south across the White Peak from the bridleway up onto Rushup Edge
I've been able to see paragliders on Rushup Edge for a while. Now I'll see them up close.
Time to take a break and admire the great view across the Vale of Edale from the top of Rushup Edge..
Heading along the ridge to Mam Tor..
More paragliders above Rushup Edge
The head of Edale from Mam Tor. It was very busy, which wasn't a surprise.
