The weather was great, sunny with little breeze till reached the ridge to head to the summit. Great visibility all round. The car parking is limited and by the time I returned there were cars parked all along the verge beyond the car park. If only people would park in the these places like it was a supermarket and not waste space, more cars could get in. :? OK rant finished.
The walk itself pretty much as described on WH.
