Walk: Top Mere Road, Nidd Head, Great Whernside, Riggs Moor, Mossdale Beck, Mossdale Scar, Dales Way
Start Point: Kettlewell Grid Reference: SD 968 723
Distance: 15 miles Ascent: 2,200 feet
Time: 6.25 hours    
Weather: A wet day, with low cloud and strong winds
Comments: Two masochists plus the leader turned out on this thoroughly miserable wet day. With rain and poor visibility virtually all day the main objective was to finish the walk as quickly as possible. The cloud did lift a little towards the end of the day to give us a glimpse of Wharfedale and the rain had stopped by the time we reached the car, which gave us a chance to change into dry clothes. I could say never again but I know I will !
