First pic of the dayImage

Rather steepImage

Worst of it almost over, but very warm for April and streams were few.Image

Late start was well worth it, light is amazing during leisurely stroll along shoulder to summitImage

Commence indiscriminate panoramasImage

Summit to myselfImage

Except hordes of gangly flies which shelter by the cairn and trig pointImage

To the southImage

Met a drone pilot here heading up for the sunsetImage

Last of the sunlightImage

Easy walk out on tarmacImage
