We were very lucky with the weather it was amazing on the way up very clear. A little cloud on top but it cleared to show us the amazing views. My tips would be take plenty of water and fill up at the red burn, if necessary. Also read all the safety guides and be safe. Take your rubbish back down. Couldn't believe how many people disregard the no litter on the mountain. We carried a map, compass, extra warm clothing and waterproofs. We didn't need any of them but we were very lucky. We went the previous year and used everything. This is not for the fainthearted, it is a hard slog over boulders, rough paths and steep inclines. We were of mixed ability and you could really tell the difference of levels of fitness. You really need to prepare and get fit to makes this enjoyable. All said I had a great day.
