  • Chris Pearson says...
  • The warning is in the name as tis' Folly indeed to attempt to summit in the nettle season of July - but I went armed with trekking pole / nettle basher and forged an "elephant track" as orienteers would say. If all goes wrong the HQ of Edale Mountain Rescue Team is close at hand just below in the delightful cement works, although my good friend, their chairman, had never realised there was such a major peak towering over their base.
