Comments: We've been here many times but there's always a new route to try out. We climbed steadily to the trig point on Pendle Hill - unusually quiet today. From here we took the zig-zig path down to Hookcliffe Plantation then made our way through fields to Mearley Hall. From here we climbed again, across the lower slopes of Ashendean Clough and back to the the 'Nick'
