Having seen that our cronies over at YCC had completed a trip down Hensler’s Pot I thought a YUCPC permit may be of interest. During training on the thursday Ali and I packed the gear and loaded it in into the car. Peter packed his club gear and also put this into my car.

The day started very efficiently leaving the store at 0730 and easily finding the alternative route to Skipton avoiding the closed A59. Reaching a cold Ingleton at around 1000 we met Mark and all tucked into a decent breakfast.

Unsurprisingly she didn’t know the way to Leck... read more
