Wow, fantastic alpine weather in the Lakes today! John joined us for a day of winter skills training. We headed into Red Tarn Cove, where we looked at movement on snow, step cutting, ice axe work and crampon skills, before putting it all to good use by taking ‘2 Gully’ to the summit and descending Swirral Edge.
Lots of bomb hard neve on the east face today, courtesy of the recent northerly winds, but southerly aspects were suffering from easily triggerable slab. Lots of teams out today on V Corner, 3 Gully, Wall and Ramp ad everything in between.
