Walk: Wray & Roeburndale
Start Point: Riverside car park Grid Reference: SD 604 679
Distance: 10 miles Ascent: 1,600 feet
Time: 6 hours    
Weather: A very pleasant sunny day
Comments: Glorious day, splendid long views to Ingleborough and beyond, and despite the frequent muddy bits, apparently enjoyed by the 14 cheerful souls who came. In fact most of the group took it in turns to lead the walk, without so much as a by your leave. Debbie Hall started the whole thing then everybody else piled in. From being a big hitter in the club I've now become a pussy cat. Might I be treated better on the two's? I doubt it. Only joking. As usual, Dorothy was our patient back marker, and managed to get David to bring his kit this time! Or didn't you hear about the Whernside walk?
