Climbed in fell running shoes (as usual!) but I took axes this time which was a good idea due to firm snow in places. Much fun.DSM - Solo - 01/Feb/14
in fell shoes - pleasant enough for "November conditions" - heathery snow and a few snow steps at top.

very misty struggled to find the correct and was quite a slog due to soft deep snow.

Not sure of the where exactly the route goes but we picked a line through the rock bands which was about II. Snow getting a bit soft but the rock n turf still well frozen.

Pleasant and a nice finish right on the summit, very easy

Soloed in Walshes whilst on a fantastic run around the Coniston Fells. Turned out to be an interesting exercise in step cutting.

Second glorious day of the weekend. Shorter and very attractive walk in from Walna Scar car parking. Mixed route not difficult but gaining exposure with every step. keith led all but one pitch, I led and had to belay on a snow slope to bring keith up, crap spikes, was not happy, would rather have gone up to more secure stance unroped. Sitting a long time in exposed belays preys on my mind. Topped out right next to trig point, beautiful views in every direction, ate butties, descended. Lots of unequipped parties ascending snow steps, accident waiting to happen.
