Mick, Norman, and Hugh enjoyed a week walking on the Amalfi Coast in Italy, with visits to Capri, Pompeii, and Vesuvius.

A visit was made to the island of Capri, where the three made the obligatory ascent to the highest point on the island, Monte Solaro. A route described as a 'scramble' was found in one guide book and that was the one taken. Here is Norman on the scramble through the limestone cleft.

The amazing site of Pompeii
On a cloudy Vesuvius, current height 1,281m. It is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted in the past 100 years.
The so called 'Walk of the Gods' is the classic walk on the Amalfi coast. Starting in Bomerano the path takes an unlikely route across the cliff face all the way down to Positano. Due to a land slip, the path was diverted down to the village of Priano on the coast, from where a bus was taken into chic Positano.

Mid-week walk and climb - Hutton Roof

15 members and guests met up by Hutton Roof church for the first walk and climb of the season. Whilst Sarah, Wayne, and Mick headed for the crag, the other 12 people headed for the summit of Hutton Roof, returning via the crag to collect the climbers. A drink in the Crooklands Hotel rounded off a fine evening.

Mid-week Walk - Lower Dentdale

It was third time lucky for Frank's walk, as the previous two attempts had been cancelled due to heavy rain. Light rain was forecast for this walk, though apart from the odd light shower it was fine. 15 members met at Millthrop Bridge and Frank led the group along the Dales High Way towards Aye Gill Pike. Recent rain made for boggy conditions, and the group dropped off the moor with relief down to Dentdale, passing bluebells on the lane verge. Lunch was taken by the river, before heading back down Dentdale along the Dales Way. The river was crossed at Brackensgill and the path headed back up the fell side behind the imposing house of Gate Manor. The Dales Way then led back to the cars at Millthrop hamlet. Thanks ton Frank for another interesting walk on unfamiliar ground.
