It was a fabulous afternoon up on Helvellyn today. The clouds had lifted and some lovely afternoon sun. Another lazy start for a quick up and down from the Thirlmere side. Some good steep crags to play on for the ascent to the summit. Cornices on Eastern and Northern aspects and with some consolidation it should be good climbing fun in the gullies. Views down to Striding and Swiral edges loking beautiful.

Now back up in the Highlands of Scotland and things looking good for another superb winter, snow and lots of it down to low levels.
