Low cloud early on in the morning, started to break up as day got hotter and got very patchy. Little cloud by mid afternoon. Got some good photos, haven't been up in these conditions before, it was really good for getting shots.

Should have taken more water though and had to top up water from a slightly dodgy tasting stream!

Long walk back along main road but the incline is fine, luckily managed to thumb a lift for the last mile or so :-)
