/ Winter Climbing - Blea Water
I believe the road is closed due to roadworks. I'm not sure if that means it is impossible to drive down the road?
We went to have a look at Blea Water Gill this afternoon - an update is here: http://www.facebook.com/LakelandAscents
Briefly, it hasn't properly formed yet. The ice that has formed is weakly bonded both to itself and the rock and water is still running freely down the line. The conditions don't really improve with height either. It needs another week I'd say.
