Back in October 2020, I met up with Jason and Jon for a Friday night out on Corn Ridge, I arrived about an hour earlier and set up then enjoyed the views and shifting light across the high moor. Branscombe's Loaf is an ideal setting to do this.

Unfortunately, my tent, the Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL2 turned out to be shocking in even the lightest of gusts, and when the wind moved side on it buckled and collapsed on the exposed corner in the early hours. Given the time, we packed up and returned to the cars before light.
