We headed up the hill in the dark with the CLAG at 100m and temperature
reading 19º. Craig was keen to put some demons to rest after Saturday's
minor errors. He did very well not being phased by features crossed but
not on the 1:50 map. Visibility (because of the CLAG) was about 10m so
it really was extreme, but he was spot on. We found a nice sheltered
area for the now obligatory tomato soup and oddball combo sarnie before
heading back into the darkness and mist for some more of the same. My
head torch began to fail so by 11.30 it was time to head for home.
I was sporting my new Arc'Teryx Venta Hoodie soft shell bought from www.moosejaw.com in the States (not available in the UK), delivered to ‘the wee man’ for him to ship across the pond. This jacket has been halfway round the world already !
