Some interesting names there.
Found a good cave that needed a proper torch and company (ie, to rescue me) to explore, in Deep Dale just S of the giant blue duck. The path NE of there is closed for 8 years (!) due to some quarry thing, but I missed that in the snow and so had to climb a steep hill (which wouldn't have been a problem in no snow...) and hop over some barbed wire. Still loads of snow, drifting up to waist deep in places.
Found the stepping stones along the river, which was what I'd been looking for, in Chee Dale. Found some amazing icicles too.
Basically a fun walk, but a bit dull on my own (learned a lot about whales from Moby Dick though) and very windy at times (meaning I couldn't hear Moby Dick).
Would make a good run route - top 10 on 4 segments despite walking so some guaranteed victories there too.
