Wow - wind, wind, wind!!!
A 10/10 climb up to a ski centre with the wind blowing very very hard - incredible stuff.
Rather childishly, I will note that the climb starts from "Cock Bridge" and heads up, up, up straight away.
The climb itself ramped up straight away, but to be honest, it was hard to tell exactly how hard it was with the wind. I think I got myself a little hysterical about how hard the wind was blowing, but I think that bad weather is pretty much standard up there - for example there were big electricity pylons that had just been blown over
The odd thing about the scenery too was the fact that things seemed "flat" - I think the size of the landscape meant that there wasn't really the perspective that you get on some hills. I can assure you that it was anything but flat!
