Would someone please clarify the activation zone of Kinder Scout?
I just want to check that my assumption that “anywhere on the plateaux” is a valid activation point. There are three trigpoints, of which Kinder Low is the highest and qualifies for the unofficial “mountain” category being over 2000 feet and many regard this as the “official” summit @ 633m. However, the OS record a highest point of 636m, north of Edale Head and there is a nice cairn at this point.
This Friday is dedicated to bell ringing in Knutsford (which is probably like memorising what an Amplitude Modulated signal looks like and concentrating on it for 3 hours!!!) while on Saturday I am planning an activation of Kinder Scout (WX DEPENDENT) with my 88 year old dad so I want to start from the top of the Snake Pass and activate from the northern trigpoint at SK076895: so as to keep the walk short and maximise the downhills.
2E0SCZ, hopefully 2R0SCZ on the day.
PS. My first ascent of Kinder Scout was in 1968 at the age of 3 and I have re-visited it many times since. This, hopefully, will be my first time as an Amateur.
