[with] Sue [weather] Fine, dry and good for walking to start with, strong wind and poor visibility on reaching summit made conditions very difficult. - Didn't see the amazing views we'd heard about. Had the wind got so bad on the way up we would have abandoned our plans and descended but it really caught us out. Lots of people changing their plans due to weather conditions.
