A cold winter day in the Lakes


Monday was a wintery morning in the Lakes with frosty pinpricks and a solid veneer if ice on the car. Winter climbing looked good for the evening.


The day was nice and a bit of lower level navigation practicing map reading skills was very enjoyable, scrambling up through woods and looking over to High Street; a wonderful long ridge walk across a whaleback of a mountain.


Adventures were shortened today as Dan and I decided not to ice climb at night but opted for mugs of tea and talking about rock climbing, instructor and mountain leader skills, whilst outside it drizzled.
