Another post-work hike for colleague Trond and me, straight from work in Bristol. We messed around a little when trying to find the trail head, and we ended up driving to within 400 metres of the summit. This gave us a much shorter walk than planned, and having spent more than two hours in the car we concluded that the drive/hike ratio was a bit higher than what really made sense ...
