Ascent Trip Report

My final English Marilyn and because I completed the Welsh Marilyns earlier in the year, this will be my 333 and final English/Welsh Marilyn.
Only planned to do this one hill on a wet and windy afternoon, but took the opportunity to collect 5 other easy Malvern ticks before finally arriving at the summit.
Because of Covid I had not arranged any completion celebrations but strong wind and driving rain meant it was not the time or the weather for sharing chocolate biscuit cake and single malt.
Stuck on 566 Marilyns now until restrictions allow travel north of the border in to Scotland.
