Jack, Pete, Gen, Fay, Dennis and …
Fraser and Erin (J’s grandchildren), Dillon and Zachary
Browgill – Calf Holes and back
With something like 63 years separating the youngest from
the oldest, it was definitely a mixed group walking over first to peer down
Calf Holes, and then to assemble at the entrance to Browgill.
E and F had been to the top of the climb a couple of years
before and into Valley Entrance last year so they sort of knew what they were
letting themselves in for – but for D and Z it was to be their first taste of
And impressive they all were. The pools are quite deep and
the climbs are quite big when you are only 6, 8 or 10; though they got their
own back in the hands and knees sections – which weren’t, for them!
Dennis took us through the dry flat out alternative at the
connection. Pete enjoyed this bit, too!
The open pot and waterfall, and Dennis produced chocolate
orange for the kids (bribes always work!) Snacks all round, and back to emerge
A great day.
Anyone else interested in the odd Wednesday trip, do get in
