What a day! Weather window opened up perfectly for us and clear skies long views and beautiful scenery were the order of the day. Easy walk in along a good path followed by possibly the steepest ascent of any hill I can recall. Didnt quite have the legs to reach the summit, but Rog and Neil both did, so well done to them!
