Ascent Trip Report

Climbed from parking near a farm, and access up through south east route up the Clough.
On summmit it was fortunately clear which made finding the (supposedly) highest point of the summit easier. Using GPS and a map, I found the place which marks the place marginally higher than the rest (marked with a small cairn and plastic pole), before heading across to Kinder Low. For most of the plateau my GPS showed between 632-636m, so it really is a nominal summit! Route return via Jacobs Ladder (Pennine Way). Total 10.2km, 3 hours.
