I left the footpath and headed for the NW slopes. Higher up I had to cross some small patches of snow, which I carefully traversed across to climb the last slopes directly eastwards to the summit.

Thanks for the compliment. Just goes to show that it's the scenery that makes the picture. My camera is a £70 point and shoot Vivatar job, that I got for taking pictures when I'm out Kayaking.
