My first attempt of the Hope Moors and Tors Challenge Walk. This was a 20 mile walk with over 1,270 metres of ascent. The weather was mixed with rain and drizzle to start then drier conditions after a few miles. I managed to pull a muscle in my leg while walking along Kinder Edges. Although this slowed me down this did not spoil an excellent walk.
