on my own today steve couldnt make it . left rowardennan at 8.30
and headed up , weather at bottom wasnt too bad,sunshine with a good wind,
by half way up it was howling and getting worse,at top it was absolutely
wild gale force and low cloud which meant i couldnt see 10 ft in front of me.
still enjoyed my first munro , which took 2hrs 15 mins to get to the top.
