Helvellyn 24th March

Did 3 routes on Red Tarn today. V Corner, Wall and Ramp then finished off with Gully 1. All in good condition, V Corner only deserves a II today due to the banked out ice and neve. I counted at least 10 teams out today.

Ben Nevis 19th March

The weather on the Ben this morning was stunning, no wind, blue sky, and it was baltic.
Nathan had forgot to pack a rope, so with only one we decided Thompson's route was a good option. The approach up to No3 buttress is pretty easy with the amount of snow and neve.
But on our way back down Nathan got more than he bargained for, loosing control with a bum slide down No4, he must have covered over 200m in about 3 seconds till he bailed out...
Great day out.

Skiddaw 13th March

Had a stroll up Skiddaw today. Pretty wintery on top with a savage cold wind blowing. Got back to the Car just before heavy snow / rain started.
