Day #174 – Shoreham Saunter

Trad: 5 Challenge: 5 Multi: 1
Walked: 7.1 miles

With unfinished business around Shoreham I decided to return today to polish off some more Challenge caches in the area, and pick up and nearby trads etc.

My first targets were the five Streaker Challenges going up the hill just to the east of Shoreham. With a DNF at #1 and #2, the climb was looking more and more unproductive, but I finally struck lucky on the remainder – and earned a new D5/T3.5 square in the process.

Having made it to the top, I then took the path south along the ridge back towards some Tribulation & Topography Challenges (one more DNF, two more finds) and rounded the day off with a Church Micro in Otford, which will go towards the Church Micro AEIOU Challenge. Another fun day out, even though it was bitterly cold!
