It was much hotter than expected and the wind did not pick up. It's a relentless start up the ski trail and can get quite warm in the sun. The views from the top of the lift are great and probably better than the official summit platform because of the treetops encroaching. The worst part of the trail was between D and C and made me regret this trip if it was all going to be like that. Luckily it isn't and it didn't seem so bad on the way back. The A summit is just next to the outlook so don't go looking far! There's a tiny path for a sad cairn if you need to make it super official.
