Set out although we anticipated the weather was going to be bad.

Great , day out. seemed longer than the 7 hours but really was a great day , tough but great.

Some were slightly concerned about the snow lying and the exposure near the top but really did look worse from a distance than it actually was.

Well done Anne, And Fiona as I know they found the exposure particularly scary .

But great achievement for us all , given the conditions .

Wind ( thankfully) was not as strong as the day before or as forecasted . Otherwise we probably would not have made it.
:clap:
