Denholme Clough 2008

Vis-mig trials
Further to David's invitation to try out vis-mig at Oxenhope, any member's who want to have a look at Denholme Clough with me will be most welcome. My usual vis-mig partner has got his own site over in Manchester. It's a few degrees warmer than the moorland watchpoint!
