Great day for probably our last walk of the year, just as well it was short as we spent more time taking pics than walking.
Easy path to follow though icy at top not too much of a problem, even if un majestic we decended part of the way(50 metres) on our bums as path was just pure ice. The frozen ground was a benefit as the path would be slippy if wet.
