Did part of my first outdoor training course on this hill, camping just below the summit. Messed up the whole sleeping arrangements as I refused to share a tent with a member of the opposite sex thereby preventing everyone else doing swops and having a randy night I was a spoilsport even them! Hills come first with me ....... every time!moorsman24/05/1975
