I'm liking these clutches of 5 Marilyns you have been posting - good for future reference as far as I'm concerned
Pleased to note that you weren't troubled this week by that stick that was following you about last week :lol:

Worked that out to be over 2700 feet of ascent (approx), so quite so walk and probably over any Graham you still have to do.. Do you feed the co-ordinates of the start into a satnav or find your way there by map?

You never said this was the 3rd one of the day - brilliant! You are fairly 'knocking' off these Marilyns. Great!! Nice to meet you - I realise your walk time would have been shorter if we hadn't chatted so long! :)
