/ Kinder Downfall Approach
Just walked the 'Pennine Way' approach via Mill Hill, but thought the navigation could be tricky with snow covering the path. Could pace and count (no GPS) but such a pain (Did it before acrross the top of Kinder - sucessful but effortful.)
Any suggestions as to other reasonable approches that would be winter viable? (I'm also wondering about getting the car up snake pass).
With winter tyres snake pass won't be a problem.
Definitely the best way, especially if, when you reach the plateau, you take a heading off left of the Downfall so hitting the wide flatbedded Kinder River, which you then simply follow (turn right) to the Downfall.
Excellent - thanks guys.

That's the way I would do it too. This is an old photo of the Kinder River in the winter...
