Easy ascent from campsite, woke up early and due to a cracking hangover went back to my tent and bed as weather not too good , cloud low. Woke up at 10.30 and headed up. Rewarded with sunshine on summit and some awesome views. Martin's tent in the night decided to head off with him in it so we had to pitch it with my guidelines and pegs. It worked as he was still there sadly in the morning Company: Martin Stewart.iandesbottes05/07/2008
