Yep, was up on Tuesday (having never done it before) and it was running saweeet. A few puddles at the top, but nothing too bad. The bogs were drying out nicely too.
It’s a bit of a bugger of a climb though, I tagged it onto my Ladybower loop (ended up about 40 miles 😯 ) and it really took it out of me. I think the constant small rocks and embedded boulders got the better of me on the hardtail, climbing back up 🙁
Incidentally, which is the better fork to take down to Langsett? I went right (east?) and came back up the other.
Don’t straight down towards the bottom on the woods where the bride crosses the river, not near the damn bcos It’s a full on flat out dh with little rocks to pop off then straight into the rocky wide bends.
Oh and conditions are incredible – my advice – do it twice, three times or more dont bother with other ladybower stuff
I used to go that way round, but now prefer descend and climb back on the left hand side heading towards Langsett. It’s nice and fast and rocky with a superb finish down to the bridge at the bottom (well beyond North America, but definitely worth it). It’s also a more manageable climb back up again.
