On Sunday, Colin from Yorkshire joined us for a day of guided ice and winter climbing in the Lake District. Our guide Paddy met Colin in Glenridding and headed up to the east face of Helvellyn to look at winter climbing skills and to get a route bagged.
Despite rising freezing levels Paddy and Colin climbed Gully 1 and descended Swirral Edge. Unfortunately the buttresses were stripped and black by the end of the day but a great day out was had regardless. Cheers Paddy for running the day.
