Main ice fall area, a bit buried
Snow lower down felt stable, higher up though still had large areas of wind slab
Great winter walking conditions on High Street but no complete ice climbs yet. Much less snow though for those wanting to avoid breaking trail in the central Lakes.
Routes were climbed on Helvellyn today and conditions were meant to be good, with a bit of swimming about (exit slopes will still need careful consideration!)
Also, routes were climbed on Cambridge Crags today, it looked good on there in the photos. Bowfell Buttress looked good... no idea about turf etc though, so would need to go and have a look.
See the Epicentre Facebook page for photos of that area.
