This route takes you up via Crowden Clough, and head for the Downfall via Kinder Gates. The rest would be largely dependent on how the going was. On top, head up the 'brook', and work left to pick up the Kinder river fairly high up. Because of the work to prevent erosion there are several more new areas of bog each year, and finding the best routes needs care. At the Downfall - there was nothing. Just a few pools. The air was still clear, the sun was hot, and the views exceptional. Three of us shared the unusual solitude of a party-free Kinder. Then, cut up to Crowden Head, return to Crowden Tower, and complete the day via the Woolpacks and Jacobs Ladder.

We did the route clockwise and would defiantly recommend not to follow the route after the cross over of paths going around to the Kinder River. No actual path to follow just deep trenches to cross and climb and it’s heavily bogged.
