The greatest joy of this somewhat wet day was the sudden realisation that the summit of this lump was, in fact, the small, inconspicuous pimple just in front of me. I had mentally prepared myself for the summit being on the range of much higher beasties lying behind it! A small glimmer of hope on a day of despair.moorsman07/03/2014
