Another long day planned as well today but no hidden extras! I did actually ascend more than stated because as I was walking down Stanage Edge I came well equiped (climbing shoes and chalk) and soloed 6 routes along the way so I made numerous ascents and descents of the edge which I did not include in the walk details.

  Start Location: Bamford Highest Point: High Neb (458m/1503ft)

Sunlit Bamford Edge from the old railway line I walked yesterday. It was either walk this route again or along the main road so I opted for this.
