Ascent Trip Report

Thick snow overnight meant that the drive from Bridges to this hill took forever. Parked on the A488 by the phone box. Trudged in the snow to the path at The Marsh. When level with summit made a direct route for top. Heavy snow fell on route up which meant visibility was poor. Waited at the top for weather to clear but after a fell runner with bare calves went over top decided to head down. Snow stopped and sky cleared once we were far enough down not to head back to summit. Found paths all the way down plus a cut across a field which lead directly towards our car
