If one parks at the legendary (I lived in a Edwardian house with its logo on my bedroom door as a kid) Cat & Fiddle inn on the Macclesfield-Buxton road, if you look south and tilt your eyes skyward by about a tenth of a degree, you will spy Whetstone Ridge. A brisk sashay along an obvious path led me to a stile, where I struck 'uphill' to the rather vague summit. The return was more direct, although the path along this line noted on my map was a work of fiction...ancient fence posts don't count.

Why climb such a nothing eminence? I'm a sucker for a physics pun...
