Went to the top of Stronghorn yesterday. Once again, the weather gods smiled upon me. It was actually very cloudy for most of my ascent but cleared up beautifully just before I got to the top. The wind at the top yesterday was close to being scary. The view takes my breath away every single time. :-) 

Papa Dragon, I'm afraid the cross needs some work. I'll PM you on this, and send you the pics I took.

Thanks all for the updates on the cross, both here and on Whatsapp..

I have contacted the MOTH General Secretary, he will bring the matter up at the next meeting, but feels that perhaps the new cross should no be repaired any more, and possibly even brought down..

The old iron 1948 cross has survived all these years, and will be left in place.

I will post updates when I know more..

I was i Bannerman Hut on Saturday night, and the wind was hectic, so I'm not that surprised..
