Topic - Winter wlaking is on (Sharp Edge in the snow if anyone cares)

Wesley Orvis - on 09 Nov 2013
Sharp Edge was in full winter glory today, certainly felt like full winter conditions with the whiteout and fresh snow falling, my mate didn't bother with his axe and crampons as he said the snow would be so soft there would be no need, he had an epic for sure. Was actually heading out west for a walk but when we saw Blencathra and Skiddaw from the A591 with a good covering down to about 500m while the rest of the Lakes only had a light dusting our choice was changed.

Was snowing down to about 100m when we left Scales.

Hopefully this is the beginning of a good winter in the Lakes.
