Newton Woods, Newton St Cyres - Blobhoblin and Twin Peaks - 18th May 2014
A lovely clear blue sky greeted the pack as the emerged from their cars, some of whom were still looking a little sleepy. Alway the hare wished everyone one a hearty "good morning" then informed is of the trail or was it trial to which we were to be involved. Open fields started to appear at the beginning of the trial/trail no woods for us, just open fields and of course uphill movements of a steep variety. By the time we reached the first check the pack were well and truly spread out. Next could it be true ,but yes it was we entered the woods, shade at last and of course lots of bluebells, very nice. We all continued to meander in the wood but some of us failed to notice we were dropping down into the depths of darkest part of the wood. Thus it came as no surprise when the great upward march started. However there was a reward for all this pain, a sweet stop at the top of this formidable climb.
Marshmallows and fruit mice were consumed whilst the once silent wood was filled with chattering hashers. Diagonally challenging uphill route continued for what seemed like three hours. I not sure that all of us have experienced this Blobby/Miss Peaks diagonally challenging routes before but I can report that whole pack made it safely back to base and a well earned drink. Well done Blobby and Miss Peaks
