The walk is pretty much as described in the walk guide. There was cloud on top all day, but didn't want to miss this chance of bagging it.

This is the notice at start of ridge.
Was pretty cold going along the top and it felt like you were never reaching the end. Had my lunch behind the dyke at trig point as it was only shelter anywhere. Gave up my place when two others arrived and made my way back down sharpish.
