/ Pendle Hill.....
Up yesterday lunchtime; 2/3" soft powdery stuff.
Going up again this morning, will report back ......
Just a couple of inches of snow lying around. I'm off up Stoodley Pike this morning to see if any of the gulleys on the north side have any ice.
Particularly remember going up one of gulleys on hard packed snow, kicking steps and using my hands. Then coming back down the same way, on my arse, completely out of control
Did a quick jaunt up to 400m on the northern aspect. Nowt but powder snow and turf only halfway frozen. Streams still running. Needs a few more days, including some thaw.
Still very powdery today.
Bloody cold and a grand walk along the top out of Mearley Clough tho :)
any further updates?
