Kinder Scout… hill or mountain?

Chris and me on Kinder Scout

As the highest point in the Peak District in Derbyshire I had always thought of Kinder Scout as a peak or a hill rather than a mountain. However, as Wikitravel and other websites classify Kinder Scout as a mountain, I’ve added it as the third mountain climbed in 2018! (And at 636 meters it was actually higher than Slieve Tooey last Saturday which is a mountain…)

Chris and I had a great weekend with 5 of our friends where we camped in Edale and climbed Kinder Scout last Saturday in lovely sunny weather.

Torrential rain the following day

By complete contrast we climbed another two peaks the following day in torrential rain, temperatures not much above freezing and high winds!
