I was absolutely shattered! The old noggin doesn’t function well before about 11am ;) So 5am felt a pretty hardcore time to get up. I know hikers have a reputation for being early risers but I don’t think I was born with the hiker gene ;)
I decided to get Nicky up at 5am this morning, so we could make an early start up Anne Saddle before the sun even came up. I’ve got experience of climbing high peaks by torchlight before, but I don’t think Nicky was too keen on the lack of visibility. It was actually pretty good though, there was still a big moon in the sky to light the way.
