Planning another look at the descent from Robinson with Andy Crook (both to find it and to make sure Andy would be happy using it in June) we joined Declan (Declan & Andy at the Hobble) in a recce of the Teenager With Altitude fell race route. Last year was the inaugural race and Declan and I have entered the 2011 race in a few weeks time and he was keen to have another look at some of the lines he used last year to try and improve them.
The promise of the weather forecast and the early morning sky never really materialised. The cool breeze made for pleasant running conditions and although Grasmoor was the only summit in cloud the low cloud and haze hung around almost all day.
The descent from Robinson looks good and Andy is happy about using it (thanks Yiannis) so now all I have to do is find it in June. Declan found some improved lines and showed us some other lines that are an improvement on those I used last year – all in all, a good day in good company on the hills.
