/ High Trek's Snow Report
I didn't know him but I'm really sorry to hear of Ians' death. In 2005 inspired by a picture of icefalls in Cwm Idwal on your High Trek website snow report a friend and I took a chance and drove up to N Wales from a snow-free Aylesbury for the w/e. As it turned out we had the best days climbing I think I've ever had. We did South Gully and The Screen on the same day and in perfect conditions, and right at the top of our grade. It was the first time I had ever used the internet to check on snow conditions and I've used your website regularly ever since. Nowadays we're blessed with a multitude of winter blogs to update us but back then your site had the best info. Thanks to coming across the site/photo (almost by accident) we ended up having a fantastic day and it's led to many more great winter climbing trips. Thanks go to Ian and you for all the time and effort you spent compiling the snow reports.
