Wot - no snow?? Must be about the only square mile of Britain without any just now! I'm sick of the stuff already. It's a great peak though - I've done it quite a few times from several directions and have enjoyed them all...

No snow in South Devon. It's not really suitable for palm trees :lol:

Spent a very uncomfortable night in the hut on the top once. The bench isn't quite wide enough (I established this by falling off it), the floor is horrendously uneven and an overly talkative local appeared at 5 o clock in the morning.
