Saturday 2nd June 2007
It was surprisingly hot today and we were definitely glad of the breeze that helped to keep us cool as we crossed Rushup Edge and Brown Knoll. After the previous week's rain there was slight element of bog-hopping with the summit of Brown Knoll being particularly boggy, although it has to be said that it was better than usual as we could actually reach the trig point.
