First weekend back after our fantastic holiday, and a whole month since we've climbed a big hill :shock: Scoob needed this one to catch up, leaving us just the 2 left to compleat round 2 :D

Ended up going for a quick day trip given the forecast, just up & down the main 'tourist' path. Set off at 2pm and thought we'd be the last ones there - but we passed a few folks still heading up as we came back down again :o Early worries about not having a head torch soon forgotten as we were back down in plenty time before dark :D
