/ Lakes or Wales this weekend-what's the best bet?
from what i can tell the ice is all falling down.
some snow gullies may be in though
Just back from N Wales - climbed in Cwm Cneifion, which is as high as you can get in N Wales.
Warm on the summit - lots of snow everywhere but very soft - made for hard going on the way in, but a glorious high speed bum slide on the way out, pretty much from the top of the cwm all the way to Llyn Idwal.
The snow pack needs 2 or 3 heavy overnight frosts to make early morning climbing enjoyable, and from the forecast I think that's unlikely
