Saturday was mild and wet, but the forecast for Sunday was weather I love: at 900m, 40-50 mph winds, gusting to 75 mph. Minus 4 C and some blizzard conditions. (warning: Do NOT walk in such weather, it can be very dangerous, and remember the disclaimer applies to every page of this web site) . So I chose the Pyg track so as to only meet the very high wind near the top.
