Looked like a great day to bag my first Munro. However experienced the full range of seasons on the ascent including a total whiteout that almost had us heading home. 10 minutes makes a world of difference though and we were able to continue on to the summit. Only able to spend a few minutes there due to the high winds and severe wind chill. Just enough time for a Mars bar to re-energize. Descent was much easier with the wind behind us and soon emerged back into the sunshine. Made the whole trip with one glove, dropped one in the car park. Thanks to whoever found it and stuck it on a fence before it got trampled.
