First climb in a while. Bit un-fit for it. Got lost in severve fog at top and ended up dragging girlfiend down a scree run on wrong side of face. Bit daunting and upsetting for girlfriend who is put off from future such climbs. Next time take compass and decent map and atempt in better weather.

Yeah just take her again on a nice day when you can see the paths and the views - she'll soon come round!
