Ingleborough from the Turbary Road
Golite Poncho Tarp
Ians Mini-Peak
A short walk with Ian from Masongill up on to the Turbary Road, and eventually Gragareth. The Turbary Road was built fro the dalesmen to collect peat from the flanks of Gragareth. It rather conveniently stays on the nice dry limestone, and passes many potholes. The views across to Ingleborough are pretty good to. The short cropped turf is ideal for a bit of gear testing. Ian had brought his Mini Peak, and I had my Golite Poncho Tarp, always good for a laugh. Eventually after a bit of loitering we struck up from the old peat road to the ridge of Gragareth. It seemed like the trig had legs it seemed miles. Clearly it wasn't once there the views out to Morecambe Bay were superb. We descended steeply above Yordas Cave back to the Turbary Road, and followed it back to the car. The sun had shone much against the forecast, although to the north the sky was black as night, we had been lucky.
