An interesting night for Roy and myself - all going well until we lost the pack on the way to Margery Hill in some clag, and unwittingly drifted off left, ending up running East. By the time we realised it was a bit late but we corrected and went South on a bearing, having nothing visible to navigate by. Frustratingly, having seen the track later, we nearly reached Margery, but I was convinced we'd overshot, which is probably why we managed to cross the Cut Gate path on the way back without realising. Fortunately the Derwent Valley is a big target to aim for... P.S. (Friday) Just been for a 'run' up Parkin Clough. I think Roy should have found a deep bog and left me to the Outer Edge crows, so when the cull of the old and infirm starts... Here is the incriminating evidence:

Yes, we thought that a cull of the older members might be appropriate as a few drifted off the back, potentially never to be seen again in the thick clag that embraced the top of Outer Edge ( someone, who shall be nameless was heard to say that John had had a good innings and it was the way he would have liked to go....). Anyway....the group set off in unison but as is the nature of warting in the absence of our esteemed leader (Cpt Harmer), there was a split in the ranks and some decided to opt for an easy run up to Margery Hill, others decided to head for Bull Stones but the majority (I think) headed for Outer Edge trig, where a whisky aperitif was duly taken and thence to Margery Hill via the waist deep bogs of the edge, where the main course was taken, including pear brandy, liqueur chocolates and the ubiquitous raspberry truffles. Back to the cars via the head of Cranberry and the river - a good night!
