    Zebralight H600w works well, even the dog can wear it.

    The season of Noctilucent cloud displays carries on giving this year. These were the brightest I've ever seen. So bright, they lit the mountain as much as the full moon. A wonderful display on a wonderful night atop Ben Macdhui, with not a breath of wind for most of the night, nor any biting insects at all.

    Pure mountain magic.

    The dog looks huge. How will you manage it when it goes 'cold turkey'.

    @WilliamC - would have felt similar just a few years ago. Having the right kit and getting some practice helps. The snow is quite soft (except on the glaciers) but not too soft and we both have crampons and ice axes to belay in the exposed sections. The snow adds time for route finding but is often easier than the steep scree slopes underneath. What worries me is meeting people on these trails without proper kit - twice families with teenagers even. But we haven't seen any accidents thankfully. Good guardian angels probably

    Bands of precipitation sweep majestically across the Leather Tor Massif...

    Or, put more simply; piddling down on Dartmoor.
