My second hill and I must say it was hard going in bits but hugely enjoyable none the less.
Start time 9am finish 2.30pm
The climb up past the tree line is hard going, gets easier once you reach the upper path but still a steep climb. The most came down at the upper path right to the summit, lifted slightly for the descent.
