Fairly clear day at low levels to start the walk.
Ended up as a long walk, extended by about 1.5 miles due to parking in wrong place, made walk over 18 miles.
Climb itself was very tough due to deep snow and steep ascent, with light snow/rain on way up. Caroline had to take lead towards top as I was knackered. Descent easier but tweaked my knee sliding in wet snow and ice so long walk back was tough.
A good climb but a long walk either side of the climb.
