thanks so much for the nice comments,as i've said before the feedback makes it worth writing the reports :D
(even though this one took longer to write up than it did to walk the ridge :lol: )

it was such a good day on the hills and the report doesnt do the walk justice in my eyes,

fingers crossed the weather hold out till monday!
