We went here hoping for good weather but it was really windy all night, damp next morning with lots of clouds in the sky. It was definately NOT the way we were hoping it would be. The walk itself is pretty straight forward although challanging in really strong winds, poor visabilty and it got worse as the day went on and we stopped several times and spoke about if we should just turn around and head back down and home. Over all it was a good experiance and enjoyable all the same.
