It was a really ideal day for it-setting off at 0800 sharp. Air temps were around 10 degrees but it was clear and the sun was out. The last 50m of the climb were under a relatively dense cloud but I set off anyway. Due to the cool temps it was possible to really push on so I ended up making it to the first false summit within the hour. the next section up towards the summit was taken at a bit of a more cautious pace due to the cloud cover and boulder field but I still reached the top with a total time of 90mins. Coming back down I stopped a couple of times to let the continual snake of walkers past within correct adherence to social distancing.
I stopped for a while at the false summit for photos and a quick bite and by the time I made it to the car park the clock was approaching 3 hours.
