Chrome Hill & Environs

First hike of the year. I chose wet, misty and practically gale force conditions to ascend Chrome Hill – a limestone reef knoll – and then continue in a big arc around the local area. Worth the effort of striding up through the mist, though it was pretty slippery up on those knife-edge rocks. Once the mist had cleared, the sun opened up to give that spectacular light you only ever see in the Peak District or Yorkshire Dales.
