A deceptively sunny day from the photos, but even at car park level the wind was whistling and this strengthened logarithmically as I ascended up to Baystones. I eventually cut the walk short and returned via the road as the wind and wind chill were too much, once it started to sleet and rain as well I knew where I'd rather be!
