Sometimes life's a bar.... :lol:

Great weather great hills & we moan about the midges :lol:

Well done for carrying on. I'll come with you next time & that will slow Ron right down. I'm not sure about the climb. I might go the bypass but i really want to sit on Lord dodas seat 8)

jonny,you'll love this walk on these hills but save them for good weather

as for the climb...its classed a 'graded rock climb' and most guides/books tell of people perishing at this bit :crazy:

lord doo-das seat is very easy to get to and will pose you no problems,leaning over the edge of it however......... :shock:

This looks a bit different from when I was on it :lol: A great hill though and despite the fact you seem not to have enjoyed the day you still managed to push yourself to the end :clap: Hopefully when you get back it'll be a bit cooler, but just a clear and you can have a ball :D

A great section of photos again :D
