Hen Cloud is a large rock hill that overlooks the surrounding scenery and offers some of grit’s finest crack climbs, and these include routes which are amongst the longest anywhere on grit.
If you’re after a good long walk then this is the one. Probably best to go on a clear day to see the views at the top but still a great walk to do with low visibility.
Very well pathed, just make sure you follow the signs and you won’t get lost. I burnt 1700 cals so take plenty of food as it does take it out of you.
Found on @peakdistrictwalksuk so give them a follow.
