Tough but worth it
by thomas_g  28 Apr 2017
This was much tougher than I expected, I was sure I'd be up and down in 2 hours. Well it's been two hours 30 mins and I'm still sitting up on top. The views are really that good. It's been dry now for nearly 3 weeks so route choice was not an issue, but the way the ground moves around under your feet as you walk across, is very disconcerting. I shall post my gpx later so there is a defined route to follow. If you don't mind some mild scrambling and high grass, take a few hours and come and visit the eagle.
