|Comments:||Joining the group for this walk, it turned out to be the wettest they, or I, had done for some time, giving the waterproofs a thorough testing. Fortunately it was quite mild so we didn't suffer too much! Most of the climbing was done in the first half of the walk with no particularly steep sections.|
