/ winter routes in the lakes for relative beginners
Like we've just had.
Look to gills and ridges in weather like this. All in the guide.
Seconded - the gills aren't properly formed yet. Give them until the end of the week. Pics of Blea Water Gill yesterday are on our Facebook page.
Yeah, it is. Fast approaches and comes in early. However, it's only been cold here for a week really and before that we had the uber thaw, which stripped everything right back. We've also had very little snow, so routes relying on the formation of snow-ice really haven't got anything to work with.
