Would you go hiking in this????!!

At about 6.30 this morning i was woken up by the sound of rolling thunder.Went on the balcony and was amazed at how warm it was…(apparently it has to do with a northerly berg wind and an offshore low pressure cell).I can see Lions Head and was amazed that a couple of hikers( i could see their torches) were making their way up to the top.The lightning got worse and instead of coming down they kept going???? Needless to say..i got my camera out.(not as easy as you think to photograph lightning!).It must be incredible to see the storm from so close but who the hell would go climbing a mountain while this is happening around you?????
