Well it looked promising early on but I can’t grumble about the weather really as it turned out much better than forecast (i.e. I didn’t get wet!). It was a typical November day really and there was hardly a breath of wind until above 700m where there was an icy blast. Today I had my own 2 minutes of silence alone on the top of Great Gable.
