Ascent Trip Report

Hiked with Simon, from home. Left about 7:30pm. The rest of the family met us at the Latrigg car park with ice cream, nice surprise! As we reached the Hawell memorial the full moon was just rising over Clough Head. Over Little Man and reached the summit at 10:15pm. Home about 1am. Partly cloudy skies, and enough moonlight for the entire hike that we didn't need our torches.
