/ Scafell - Central Buttress - condition
Any info much appreciated.
Can I hijack this for thoughts on Neckband, too?
Although I'm not overly optimistic because the Met, BBC, and XCWeather are all saying very different things at the mo......
Somebody may be along with more specific info on current conditions, but I'd have thought it would be fine. The top pitch and the ?2nd pitch have damp areas on them, but that needn't be a problem. The crux pitch, being a free-standing flake, takes no drainage.
Wrap up warm!
Ok, it sounds like it could be time to bring the long johns into service.
Been out scrambling the last two nights around Consiston area, only low down, but did not come across any wet rock whatsoever, even the boggy areas are fairly walkable.
Raining in west lakes since 4pm, Sorry to piss on your chips
and due to rain for much of tomorrow through to Saturday morning :-(
Well, fingers crossed for Sunday. Also have a mission to complete - the place where the chockstone used to be needs to be measured so that a replica can be constructed for a reconstruction event celebrating the centenary of this route by Herford and Sansom!
