19 Mar 14  Bleaklow from Slippery Stones.  Sunny.

As the weather was fine on the way back from Nottingham I decided on a quick thrash up Bleaklow.
I surprised myself by feeling fitter than I expected, as I've not done any serious walking since I had the hand surgery.
I wasn't able to grip a walking pole for a while and I didn't want to risk tripping and falling on the hand.  That's
how it all started in the first place - coming off the Howgills many years ago I slipped backwards and as I put out my
hands as I fell, the finger caught on a rock and was bent backwards.  It was never the same after that but got a lot
worse in the last year or so.
