From the big Cp at Balmaha, admirably free to control parking in a heavily visited area. Just a nice hill to do- up the WHW then diverted to the two main tops- the true summit to myself on a busy day. Midge nets already part of the WHW walkers' attire. Cloudy, showers kept off, long views especially S.pwheeler26/05/2014
