Race Yate crossing
There was a lot more snow here than the last time I visited on skis (NY9416 : Race Yate Gate) and no difficulty whatsoever in crossing the fence from my ascent route on the north side of the Race Yate Rigg wall. Unfortunately, the visibility was a lot poorer and the light a lot flatter, too, which made the continuation of my 53rd birthday celebratory ski tour on the Pennine Way to the south into an entertainingly challenging descent. The view from this point is a lot nicer on a clear sunny day NY9416 : Race Yate Stile. Despite the deep snow and the considerable distance from any road or farm, there were vehicle tracks on the north side, although these were drifting over in places, making them less useful as a loipe for a nordic skier.
