I was all tucked up in bed last night, and instead of counting sheep I was going over my plan for the morrow (Sunday). The target was to climb Hoove (NZ 003 071), and if possible one of two other remaining Marilyns in Area 35 nearby: Rogan’s Seat (NY 919 030), and Kisdon, (SD 899 998).
Picturing the parking spot for Hoove that I had identified on the map, gradual familiarity took shape in my mind and I felt compelled to arise, go downstairs and research, which culminated in realisation that I had climbed Hoove with Pete about four years ago.
|The track down to the River Swale from Keld - my summit was behind the centre horizon|
|Note the frost on the field - there were patches of ice everywhere|
|East Gill meets the Swale|
|Back to Keld|
|Remains of tractor strangely embedded in the track|

|Old mine buildings - pity they were still just in shadow. My route followed a path along the top of that shadow|
|The unprepossessing summit of Rogan's Seat, but great views|
