Well, it was time to dust off the boots and head for the hills again for my first walk of the year. Arrived at 11am and the car park was full and everyone else was parking along the road so parked there.

There's a good quality path all the way up most of the way now from the car park.

Eventually the path reaches a large cairn at the edge of the summit boulder field, from there it's a case of picking a line to the summit.
