Ascent Trip Report

Hike from Bolventor to Brown Willy and back. Best idea is to stick to the path. Made the mistake of cutting across country early on, which turned out to be slow going with boggy ground. Path was often muddy and not always good, but sticking to it made the return quicker in spite of it being a slightly longer route. Overcast but decent view of Exmoor from the top.
