I think I was getting tired because both the drive from the previous summit, and the walk up the hill, both seemed to take a lot longer than they should.  I needed to don the headtorch for the final part of the ascent.  Incredibly windy at the summit and quite difficult to operate. I was acutely aware of the danger of the wind snatching the paper logbook from my right hand and launching it on a flight never to be seen again, with all my as-yet unsubmitted logs from ten recent activations!

The visibility closed right in with thick damp mist, and I managed to lose the path on the first part of the descent.  Once in the car, I set off home to Macclesfield.  Fatigue caught up with me near Whitchurch, and I pulled into a lay-by, reclined my driverís seat, grabbed my pillow and set my alarm for an 8 minute power nap.  I fell almost immediately to sleep, and when I awoke felt refreshed, and I was able to complete the drive back to Macclesfield feeling alert.  A 30 point SOTA day.
