JudithE 9 Mar, 2016 - Scales - Sharp Edge - Scales Fell - Scales. 4.5 hours due to lack of fitness, atrocious conditions and this being the first hill trip since early October. Strong crosswinds, intense cold and thin soft snow low down made for an exciting climb. Part unroped, part pitched and part moving together. Other parts were worse than the bad step. Near white out on the summit. Saw only 6 other people all day, and only one other on the ridge.
