The trig rests on a huge cairn of boulders, and it took me over five minutes to cover twelve feet to get to the top over the boulders with wind tearing and ripping at my clothing and throwing me off balance. I tried to take photos from the trig but it was impossible to hold the iPad or the camera still enough. I did manage some shots after retreating from the summit, but it was not easy. It makes you realise how difficult it must be getting the vital shots from Himalayan summits.
The road I came on continued steeply down hairpin brands to the coast and a dead end. Here an old quarry workers' village has been restored with outside displays, a museum and a café.
Return to caravan was by ridiculous, tortuous, single track lanes. Fortunately there is almost no traffic, but in future I reckon I will take the longer routes on the main roads.
