/ Grade I - II in the Lakes?
currently warmed up a bit. Plenty of drifted snow in N & E aspects. Think the warm spell will have settled the snow pack down - as on noon Monday it was very very unstable in gullies.
Forecast is for the weather to cool down by Friday - should nip things up nicely for the weekend.
Worth remembering that some bits of lakes had far more snow to start with - NW corner have relatively little (and has mainly disappeared from the glimpses I've managed through the cloud, although possibly thin gullies lines left), whereas further south and further east both had more to start with, so there's more chance of being some left.
thanks for that.
After 9 days in a row on the Fells - I have a pretty good picture of what snow bulid up is like and what remains - check out the Webcam on Raise which is back up running
and regular reports from Raise here:
Have you seen the forecast for tomorrow?
Westerly gales, with either rain (MWIS) or snow (Met office) - either way, I wouldn't hold out too much hope for decent safe climbing conditions. Personally I'd go for a walk (or do some nav practice if conditions are too vile to go high).
Managed to re-arrange for Friday, so fingers crossed for less wind and some re-frozen slush
I was at Red Tarn today and it was very windy with hail and aperture showers. There is plenty if snow still around up there but it really needs to get colder and refreeze before anything is worth climbing.
