On the hillside to the left of here there are supposedly quite rare wild flowers. I had a look some years ago but didn’t see any. There was a television programme depicting this with a university expert and a presenter using ropes and helmets. That might explain why I didn’t see them. Or it may have been health and safety silliness and dramatic effect. The climb behind here is slippery, severe and potentially dangerous. I’ve surveyed it twice and won’t bother doing so again. I can do a little scrambling and low grade climbing for a short distance but this is different.
