Pleasant ascent in excellent weather, although I did not pick up the path straightaway. Made all the more special by bumping into Hamish MacInnes near the finish.JohnW17/06/2010
Taken in the afternoon after waking up at 5am to fly to Scotland - might explain why two team members had issues... Great scramble to be had at the top if you divert from the path and just plough straight up.Richard28/05/2010
