Miserable day with driving rain and 50+ mph winds, most folks bagging the peak and turning back (1 other person followed). Zaz and I made our way along the ridge (longer than expected) then back via the track, 4 hours, soaked thru and miserable :|bowzi27/09/2009
Completed most of the ridge from the visitor centre and missed the quarry on the descent. Enjoyable circuit.Roblex20/09/2009
