Once nearing Little man there was so much wind it was covering tracks within seconds. #scary. .
After watching two people struggle through the depth of snow decided not to try for Little Man. Passing people coming back down who said they had turned back because of bad visibility. Thought I'd keep going until I felt it right to turn back. Luckily there was sufficient gaps in the cloud to get to the top. Bloody freezing on top but some lovely views every now and then.
Descended off the side towards Carl Side then trudged back down to the village and along the road to the car.
Bit scary at times but feel that I've earned a glass of red in front of the fire now.
