The weather was still bad as we considered the options. We waited a while for the thunder and lightening to die down, but more was forecast later. Rather than risk being caught in an exposed position on the Culiembro, with a group of 14 and wet, slippy condition, Rosana wisely opted for "Plan B" and we went back to Lake Ercina, albeit by a lightly differed route via Majada de Belbin.
