We held our monthly ‘Women’s well-being walk’ 6th May what a great turnout we had.
We walked form Surprise View over to Higger Tor and Robins Hoods cave at Stanage with a welcome stop of ice creams and a celebratory drink at the Fox house afterwards. The weather was superb and the views just staggering

And a huge congratulations to the Ladies who walked the ‘Lady Anne’ Walk a 100 mile ‘self-supported’ walk across Beautiful Yorkshire dales through the Eden Valley and ending up in Penrith.
We wild camped and had a great time in magnificent weather – it was tough going with big numbers to hit in terms of mileage each day – everyone was fantastic and met their own personal goals we are very proud of you all well done.
Here’s the team enjoying the walk.
Our Book Review this month is
Touching the void by Joe Simpson
Book Review June 2018
Winner of the NCR Award for non-fiction and the Boardman Tasker award.
This is one of the most inspiring books I have read regarding the instinct to survive against all the odds…………………..
Touching the Void is the heart-stopping account of Joe Simpson’s terrifying adventure in the Peruvian Andes. He and his climbing partner, Simon, reached the summit of the remote Siula Grande in June 1995. But what really happened up on the mountain makes a gripping read – A few days later, Simon staggered into Base Camp, exhausted and frost-bitten, with news that that Joe was dead.
This is a story of friendship pushed to the limit – What happened to Joe, and how the pair dealt with the psychological traumas that resulted when Simon was forced into the appalling decision to cut the rope, makes not only an epic of survival but a compelling testament of friendship.
You will find you cannot put this book down and even if you are not a mountaineer you will enjoy this true life epic.
