Best mountain so far...high winds, wet weather, wee bit scrambling and up in the clouds. Path almost non-existant in parts so much so I managed to climb another hill! After the bridge/poles(!) and crossing the style stick to the fence line until the next style!!! Very wet and boggy but a great walk.

Certainly cleared up a bit. Was well worth it though. GREAT walk....felt like I'd been 10 rounds with Tyson!
