Saturday 13th of March.
Well this was really a bit of a training walk and a test to see how far my fitness has increased since 2008. The last time I did this route I was badly out of shape and had only been walking for about 3 months. The walk destroyed me, it took nearly 8 hours and it took me a week to recover. This time it was very different, it only took 5 hours 3 mins... ish. I felt fit and strong and only had a minor niggle from my left knee.
Enjoyable this time rather than torture :P
Still plenty of snow about but not enough for axe and crampons :(
