Time taken: 4 hours

Well after a week of boring DIY etc, decided to get out the house for a while. Mate was meant to be joining me, but text at 3am saying he wasnt gonna make it!!

Anyway, left the house about 6:30am, and actually started walking about 7:45am. Started off fairly clear and headed straight up the tourist path.

Further up, the cover began to close in, reducing views..

Onwards and upwards the visibility didnt looks so bad, and with all my huffing and puffing i was hoping the clouds would be blown away!! Was also surprised by not having been overtaken by anyone yet.
Not much chance of a clear view, can maybe just see past the edge. Wind had really picked up over the last wee bit, but as i reached the last few meters, there was a surreal calm the whole time i was up top, saved the camera getting blown away! :D

Time was about 10:15am and seeing the views were blocked off, didnt hang around long, couple of pics, some video (hoping for a glimpse of something) then off back down. All in all, was back at the car for just before 12pm.
