Woohoo! And … Phhhhew… Finally! It’s the top. The real top. Not one of those numerous fake ‘tops’ they always install on these mountains, just to get your hopes up. 1400m ascent. Complete. Now that’s what I call an afternoon’s work well done.
Puffing and panting we finally emerged at the top of the 1800-metre ridge crest, there was one last little scramble then we were at ‘The Pylon’. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read there was a pylon on top, perhaps good mobile reception I thought? Turns out the pylon is much like a little 3 legged trig point. It’s not even attached to the ground, we found it hidden away on it’s side, presumably people think it spoils the extensive views up here. The views are indeed impressive, the sort of 360 degree panorama you normally only get on a summit.
