As I got nearer to the bottom of the trail, I reached the cloud layer. Pretty quickly visibility was down to just a few metres. It was late afternoon now, and quite a few people were heading up, presumably planning to stay at one of the huts overnight. The weather forecast was for pretty bad conditions, with heavy rain and possibly gales. I didn't fancy their chances of making it to the top or having a particularly fun time trying.
