Ascent Trip Report

The first point of our 3 peaks challenge. Started from the parking (£6 all day)at the visitor centre at 0500 precisely, and despite a drenching, returned to the car at 0845 (the far park starts charging from 0800 which meant we needed to only have paid for 1 hour but heyho) The route is always clear, and the conditions are good to go quite fast in sections due to the lack of loose scree on this peak (compared to Scafell Pike), and the evenness of the stone (compared to Snowdon-Pyg track).
