Saturday 21st December 2019 - Sharp Haw G/NP-029 & Rombalds Moor G/NP-028

 

Gig: Christmas Live!

Venue: Doncaster Racecourse

 

This was the last day of the run of Christmas Live! shows.  I still hadn't activated these two summits in 2019, so although thet were a bit of a drive from Doncaster (like everything is really!), they were at least fairly close together and easy to combine in one trip.

I started from the usual parking spot on the right-angle road corner just North West of Skipton.  It's generally an easy walk - a short distance up a gentle gradient - but some of the ground was extremely damp and boggy.  At the summit, in contrast to recent visits, it was easy to gather more-than-sufficient contacts to qualify the activation.

I could now drive down to Rombalds Moor G/NP-028 and be confident of being back in Doncaster in plenty of time.
