TobyA 10 Feb Solo O/S Not quite continuous - a few steps of scree between the snow lower down. A good couple of hundred metres of harder snow at the top. About as close as there was to a winter route on BCC today.

michaelb1 10 Feb Lead The bottom section is broken with rocky steps so we scrambled up without crampons. Put them on for the upper section which is was on firmer snow. My lads first winter gully.

Dave Richards 16 Dec, 2017 Solo Was planning on the ridge to the right but that had a team of 3 on so chose the gully having previously been told it was in decent nick. It was. Some soft snow to start which improved with height to solid neve near the top. Some exposed turf which wasn’t frozen near the bottom was easily avoidable.

dtbrad 20 Feb, 2016 AltLd O/S Brilliant day out climbing a winding route to the top of Brown Cove Crag. Did a mixture of soloing and alt leads, using ropes when we felt the need. Very wintery conditions. Lots of snow and spin drift, very windy at the top. Carried onto the summit of Helvelyn.

bonebag 11 Mar, 2014 Solo 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.

Graeme Hammond 24 Feb, 2013 Lead O/S 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.

Nice to get out and play in the snow.
JudithE 24 Feb, 2013 2nd 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.
