A wild day with 70mph winds on the summit, the neve was just about holding on after the torrential rain of the previous day and will probably not survive much more if it doesn't freeze hard for a few days. Water was running under the snow at many points !!

Wanted to go up Gully 1, but Pete heard an awful crack in the ice as he went up it, so the rest of us backed off.

Intended to do a harder route, but the conditions (especially the wind) were so harsh that we decided to solo number 2 gully. I've never known winds so strong on the summit, you could barely stand and could definitely not walk in a straight line. Did the last part of the route with eyes shut because of the spindrift, got some goggles now :-)

Climbed in good snow conditions up to the summit shelter and saw Alan Hinkes guiding clients on the way. Came down Swirral Edge and then attempted Gully 1 but too busy so went back to Gully 2 and did it again with no one else on it. Descended by Striding Edge. Saw mountain rescue incident involving helicopter pick up close to Red Tarn. Later found out that poor chap died in a fall.
