/ Kinder Downfall area - descents etc
I'm all up for a bit of adventure, but it's good to know what you're letting yourself in for...
I've only played up here in winter but from memory its a long walk round on steep grass or abseil back down each time then walk off the top at the end of the day.
That's my memory too. ie pretty easy for the sort of person with enough sense of adventure to head up there in the first place :-)
Dovestones and the southern edges are also options, but the downfall area looks like it's got more really top notch routes at the grades we're interested in, namely Zig Zag and South Wall and the Downfall itself for the VDiff leaders and the Great Chimney and Mermaid's Ridge for me.
