Bleaklow 'offering enjoyable climb'
Bookmark and Share
Bleaklow in the Peak District offers some enjoyable ascents and good walking for those in walking boots and outdoor jackets, it has bene claimed.

Outdoors website Grough said this was despite is grim reputation, noting a quoted form Alfred Wainwright in the 1960's that "nobody loves Bleaklow".

The portal features a route starting in Longendale to the north of the moor, which uses the Pennine Way to ascend to the 2,077 ft summit and then beyond to the Wain Stones, which look from one angle like they are kissing.

Walkers may also note some crashed aircraft sites on the plateau, of which there are six.

The route from Longendale is not the only way up the mountain, with the Pennine Way also offering access from the south.

While some may come this way en route from Kinder Scout as they undertake the entire trek up to Kirk Yetholm, others can start where the path crosses the Snake Pass.

Another route up is the Doctor's Gate Path from nearby Glossop.
