Topic - Lords Rake/Bowfell conditions

ablackett - on 23 Feb 2013
I am supporting a friend on a Bob Graham Round Sunday (tomorrow), he wants to go up Lords Rake/West Wall Traverse.

What is the snow condition like at the moment in there? Micro Spikes or axe and crampons?

As an alternative, now I know this is a long shot, but has anyone done the east wall, climbers traverse into foxes tarn, this week? It's a route I know well, but not one I would want to do with hard ice patches on the grass.

Also - has anyone been up the BG route on Bowfell this week? Again, spikes, or axes and crampons?

Thanks for any info.
