Felt a bit tired, stopping unusually often on ascent, though still made good time to the summit. Wind had increased from earlier and almost got blown back from the trig, glad that I was protected during ascent/descent by the hill itself. Had a sit/lay down in the snow/heather for a decent while (20mins?) before going back to trig, then sitting down, before descent. Nice day.
