This week’s theme straight away reminded me of one of the best mornings of 2014 this far.
After a 0200 start from Glasgow in the driving rain, we parked the car and started climbing though the forest and soon the rain changed to snow but we continued along the path in our own little bubble that was made up from the light from our head torches. After walking for about an hour the climb started getting stepper and the snow deeper but we continued upwards and after backtracking a couple of time due to getting lost in the now whiteout we were finally on the last steep slope and soon we made our way up the final ridge and reached the summit shortly before 0800, just in time for the sunrise and a well deserved frozen breakfast. Our time at the summit was very brief as the wind chill brought the temperature down to around -25!
Below is the view that greeted us on and off as the strong wind moved the clouds around.
