Dire Met Office warnings of Arctic conditions, as usual, came to nothing but a heavy frost/light dusting and a snipey easterly made for good running potential.
Off we went to High Down to get out in it before crampons scarred the pristine surface. A quick sprint up Brat Tor and up to Great Links Tor which was shrouded in a sort of semi-clag with the promise of snow.
Cracking the ice on the track to the Dunna Goats we picked up the track to Dick's Well and back over to Brat Tor for the brains-out descent to the Lyd and back to the car park.
Met Office mutterings of snow early next week..........
