Late start to allow the clouds to rise. Parked up in Grand Parcher to set off at 10.15am.
We joined an old forest track to follow wooden signs that rises steeply through the Black Wood. The track quickly turns into a path with steepening gradients as we gain height. With a sustained effort we continue to gain height before the last push to arrive at the summit in 3h10m. The clouds were starting to disperse and we were rewarded with spectacularly clear 360 views of the neighbouring mountains. Returned by the same route.
The route a straight forward and non technical, but ruthlessly steep and a great cardio workout!
