The walk is pretty much as described on WH page. The power substation work is still progressing, but doesn't interfere with the path, just the number of vehicles you need to dodge.

It is a good climb up, the false tops made me laugh, thinking I'd only one more to do, as if. The last one did have a significant snow bank to get up but I didn't use my spikes. Great views all round.

Dropped off the top to have my lunch and sunbathe too. Great.
Took my time going back down. Had a good wee slide down the snow bank too. Got a bit of the sun on walk back.
