Ascent Trip Report

Started at 9:25am from the free car park at Achintee farm (limited sapces, get here early), was at the summit in just under 3hrs. LOTS of people on the trail, a few hundred at least, impossible to get lost. Trail was not too steep and well maintained. Weather was cloudy on the ascent, whiteout at the summit. There was a lot of snow on the trail on the final approach to the summit, but no need for crampons.
