A cold morning but great views.
Ground wasn't frozen but the cold seemed to have congealed the muddy spots lower down. Thereafter very easy walking with the grassy hillside seeming to comprise of bumps and tufts just the right size for my stride.
Got quite excited at the top when I saw that I'd got there in one hour and five minutes but then realised that I hadn't yet put my phone's clock forward.
An unusual walk in that it took me a lot longer to descend than ascend. This I put down to stopping a lot to take pictures and then to warm up my hands after taking pictures but also the weather improved as I descended and so kept me lingering and snapping.

An unofficial crossing point perhaps; it at least offers an alternative to the more boggy ground on this side.

Very easy walking all day, probably aided by the cold ground albeit non-frozen.
