The main fall gives a short ice pitch. This is followed by aprox 200m (Horizontal distance) of short steps and icy slabs.

Ticklists: Peak Winter, Scrambles in the Dark Peak (winter).

Main pitch half-formed, lots of snow about from the previous night. Had a good session on it though.

Beginning to dwindle away on the lower part but fun anyway

Water running under ice, fat ice

Great conditions for this, though a thaw seemed to kick in when the snow started. Should also mention getting stuck in the snow, and staying in the Plough Inn

Brilliant day out, got stranded when the snow dumped and had to stay in a lovely B&B - I recommend both the route and the Plough Inn at Hathersage.

Great fun. Thick solid ice from just below the main pitch to the top.
