01-Sep-2002 -- I've posted the main details at http://www.karley.org/KGB-MC/Cock-Cairn/cock-up.html#pointlessness

In short, some friends and I were heading off for a walk up the hill. I noticed the magic little blue cross on the map, remembered about the DCP, and instantly re-arranged my days activities to a more worthwhile aim.

Where was I? Yeah - walked up there, got soggy feet, photographed a few things, got back to the car 2 hours before the hill-walkers and was having a pint while the rest of the lads were thrashing around in the dark wishing they had a torch. Bliss!
