The steep stone staircase of Jacob’s Ladder makes a challenging ascent to the summit of Kinder Low. This iconic section of the Pennine Way is a delight to hike, though, and rewards you with magnificent views when you reach the top.

Jacobs ladder is a series of stone steps leading down into the valley of edale from Kinder Scout or up to Kinder Scout if you do my route in reverse. They are definately worth the hard slog if you ascend the ladder but with 2 children in tow we didn't brave the slog, instead we descended via the ladder and had a dip in the stream at the bottom to cool our feet down and allow the kids a breather after our 9 mile hike! The quaint bridge at the bottom was a little beauty spot
