9 members where joined by a new walker, Nigel.Turns out he drinks in the Cleveland Bay!

So 10 walkers set off from the Saltergate CP on the A169 adjacent to the Hole of Horcum.

Down the main route into the Hole, David led us along the bottom to pigtrough griff.

An interesting scramble ensued, under and over fallen trees, across rocks – brilliant.

We traversed around the top to Hawdale griff and descended again where we had lunch in the bottom.

Back up Horness griff brought is back to the main path around the Hole.

A relatively flat 2 mile return to the carpark.

We duly stopped off in Sleights for a well earned drink.

Great walk David.
