About This Web Site

Bryan Benn I started hiking again in 2004: and with my love of Germany decided to see if I could manage to hike up into the Bavarian mountains. And I could! Since losing my lovely wife I find it hard to contemplate returning to Germany, but thanks to contacts in the Ramblers Association Discussion Forum I have discovered UK hill walking! Snowdonia and the Derbyshire Peaks and Dales to be precise. Now well into 2009 I am surprised at what I have achieved, and have hopes for many more summits in Wales and Derbyshire and many more walks in the lovely Derbyshire Dales. I walk "4 Seasons", but with lower activity in the summer. My main walking season is from September through to April/May. All of my hiking trips are arranged in "trip order" on this site, as this web log, (blog), is primarily my record of each trip. But there is also a summit list on the Index page for anyone who wants those.

I thank those visitors who have E Mailed me about this web site.

My other main, (and very long term), hobby is Steam Railway Locomotives: So please visit my germansteam.info web site if that subject interests you as well. Bryan Benn, England, November 2009

Key to Route Descriptions

Explanation of how the details within each hike's text table are arrived at.

Start and Finish   The locations from where the hike started and ended. The altitudes from the appropriate contour line or printed height from the relevant Topographische Kart 1:25000, Bayersisches Landesvermessungsamt München map.

Round distance in kms   A very broad estimate of total distance walked including any "excursions". Even using the 1:25000 maps. Frequent zig zags, height gains and undulations are the main problems in getting full accuracy here.

Vertical altitude gain   Not the height difference between starting and highest points, but an estimate from the detailed maps of the total metres ascended including all significant undulations and "excursions" off the route.

Total time from start to finish   Time from start point to finish point. My ascent rate is still slow, but getting above 300 metres per hour now, (Summer 2006), so many other people would complete the hikes quicker. I often have no stop lasting longer than a few minutes, but picnic stops and visits to huttes will be mentioned in the text.

Weather   A broad description of the weather conditions during the hike. Temperatures from the nearest weather recording site that I can find, (done on my return to England), or from local TV reports.
