A great day on Brown Cove Crags in brilliant sunshine. All the big gullies on Brown Cove Crag were full of frozen snow today. We climbed the left most of the two parallel gullies to the left of Left Buttress. The small cornice at the top was a bit soft and sugary in the warming sun. Used axes and crampons. Looks like they could stay in condition for a few days yet so long as it stays dry and frosty at night. The ridge between the gullies is clear of snow.

led all pitch except the last little bit, good crisp conditions and felt better than the other routes that day because apart one set of steps coming from the buttress on the right near the top the route wasn't a staircase of steps. Good belays took a bit of finding, would have be easy to solo.
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 24/Feb/13 with judith, Becky E

Graeme led it all except the last pitch when Bex and I climbed through. A less satisfactory angle (less steep) than Left Branch. Not yet up to soloing such a long route. An upwards expanse of snow looks very different with a rope leading up and away from me than without one.

Nice to get out and play in the snow.
