There are four checkpoints which may be visited in any order
At each checkpoint there is a stake and punch.

1 - 092953 - Hern Stones - north side.

2 - 113963 - Bleaklow Stones.

3 - 130962 - Grinah Stones - top of.

4 - 122932 - Stone shelter south-west of river and north of fence.

The route is approximately 10.4 miles in length with 1780 feet of ascent

In mist and/or bad weather it will be a testing little outing but, in the event of becoming disorientated, if you simply head south from any point on the route you will finish up either on the Snake Road or in the Alport or Westend river valleys and thence also to the Snake Road.
If, on the other hand, you find yourself heading downhill in a northerly direction you will have gone hopelessly wrong and should do something about it !!

Post-event socialising will be in The Snake Inn
