|Name of walk||Blackcombe in Snow|
|Date of walk||2006-03-04|
As the sun was shining and snow was on them there hills we decided to go up Black Combe (1970ft). The path up is simple and you can`t get lost. Thankfully it wasn`t slippy in the least but it did get cold and a bit windy towards the summit. We set out from Whicham Church, it`s 5 1/4 miles there and back.
Boys on the hill.
Tom got a blister so I headed for the summit alone. The snow for the last 200m was quite deep, up to my shins, but not too bad on the summit. The wind was blowing snow and covering all footprints on the path up. Cairn from the east side.
No one on the top except me and an old crow.
View out to Kirkby.
Them there hills again.
