Thursday 31/10/2013. The finish to my Nth Midlands trip, this top was the most disappointing, but it had the highest mast by a long shot. It took me 13mins from car to car. This was my fifth summit today, when all was said and done I had travelled 366kms for these five summits. Would never have dreamed of visitng these places except for Mt Views.
