Attermire Scar, Settle, North Yorkshire, England

A trip to Settle should convince you that classic limestone hill country abounds around there too. My first passage by Attermire Scar was on a walk from Settle to Malham in summer rain and I vowed to return. In fact, it was a winter hike in the other direction that afforded me the chance to make more of the crags. The fading February sunshine that provided the lighting helped a lot too. In fact, the whole day was of the crisp frosty variety that pays dividends if you just wrap up for the conditions and get out there. Many of those have come my way and all have been memorable for the right reasons.
