On the way up here wasnt sure if I was going to be able for it, but by the time I met up with the lads wasnt feeling as tired and the company made it a lot easier, weather was wet and strong winds higher up, this didnt take too long 3 and 3/4 hrs up and down to take me up to 50. Met a lot of folk on both way up and way down seemed very popular today, was good to meet up with Gary and Russel and hope they had a good journey back to Glasgow.
