A quick nip up Tinto on my way north to the highlands
Distance: 7.5km; Ascent: 470m; Windy with showers of rain & hail; Solo
Unfortunately I didn’t make it through the draw for this year’s TGO Challenge; however I decided to still head up to the highlands for a week of hill bagging and walking during the first week of the challenge. As I didn’t set off from Stockport until this morning, it was always going to have to be a short hill today, and I fancied climbing Tinto above the Clyde valley.
