Wonder Why :roll:

Aa the title says, mucho wetness forecast and a wee bit of wind thrown in. Add that to the remoteness and you've basically got sone hills to yourself.
Not the most glamorous and maybe not the best views but they are what they are. A day out, a bit of peace, some exercise xnd sone new hills.
Out and back today
Didn't want to leave Cape Law for when I go back and do Saddle Yolk - so i thought I'd add it in today which also added in the bonus top of Din law

Just one or two pointers. Once you've crossed the bridge kerp heading up with the waterfall on your left until you get to the trig- quite steep
There's a new high fence there get through the first gate you see and onto the high ground otherwise, like me , you end up contouring between the fence and the wall!!!. No good.
Don't bother - (like me) , hunting for a cairn or a rock which marks the summit on Garelet Dod. Its unmarked ( as I've jyst checked!!)
3hrs to get to Cape law and about 2 coming back obviously I didn't have to veer off for the summits on the way back

Actually not a bad view today!!!!!! as it then rained for about an hour solid. Nice view of Erie Hill on the way back though (the phone wasn't coming out again to get wet again though)
