/ North York Moors winter conditions
Grid reference please.
(Never heard of that one)
a layer of drifted new snow, deep in places overlies a older snow (Perfect x-country skiing)
The temp is around +1c at 1000'. Apart from some reasonable frosts a week ago the temperature has been hovering just below freezing. Not recent enough nor prolonged enough to bring it into condition at least if conditions ower er are owt to go by..
The head of Glaisdale is one of my favourite spots. The cliff, marked on the maps, weeps water and in good conditions this gives plenty of choice routes of around 20 - 30 ft.
Oh, dear, I meant the head of Great Fryup and not Glaisdale.
15.5C in York this evening :-(
