Was late on the go and didn't get started the walk until 13.45. The Sun was just breaking through as we were starting our walk and everyone we met was saying they had walked through the cloud. There was a temperature inversion to the south of the hill and it made for some spectacular photo's. There was no wind on the top and it was nice and warm all the way. got back to the car just after 6pm, excellent days walking.

We climbed this the day before you but the weather was awful. Fortunately we had 'Inca' to guide us through the clag!
