Scouts – Tues 17th Dec: Survival Badge

Meet at Burbage North car park, 7pm. Pick up, same place, 9pm.

Burbage North is a world famous (in climbing circles) edge of Millstone Grit, just inside the Peak District. You will probably have passed it on your way out to drop scouts at Stanage Edge a number of times. In summer, there is normally an ice cream van there. Directions: take Ringinglow Road out to the Peak District. Pass the Norfolk Arms pub on your right. Keep going up the hill. The road then levels off on the moors. Drops to 40mph limit. When you go over a cattle grid you are only one minute away. Roads just starts to go slightly down hill. Car park on left for Burbage North is before a very tight uphill left bend.

Your two clues for tonight are:

  1. This is the Survival Badge
  2. Be prepared.
