The more observant amoungst you will have noticed the slight difference in our ascent and descent. Aaccording to the person at the front of the group at that time who shall remain nameless, this was a ‘deliberate’ diversion!
We set off from the carpark at 0655 and made it to the summit at 1255 (six hours of ascent). After about twenty minutes at the summit we began our descent at 1315 and reached the car again about 1815 ( five hours of descent).
