The weather looked as though it would be good today, almost too good to be true given the recent bad weather and more bad weather forecast for the rest of the week. It wasn’t a difficult dcsision to take the opportunity to get out, on the climb the sun was beating down and it felt really warm but once up onto the ridge there was a gentle breeze and a reminder that it is still only January. Fantastic conditions and fantastic views all round today.
