NZ0007 : Crossing Hurr Gill

Crossing Hurr Gill
Crossing Hurr Gill
Shortly after it leaves the NZ0007 : Summit plateau of Hoove, Hurr Gill starts to cut very deeply into the peat, making it difficult to cross. Whilst an ascent of Hoove is probably only for the connoisseur or the inveterate trigpoint or gridsquare bagger, even such will want to stay to the north and cross the gill as high as possible whilst its valley is still shallow. Such a course brings one somewhere near where this photo was taken, where a deep snow drift enabled me to cross with minimal loss of height, and without steep slopes, an important point when the snow has a hard icy crust !
