report was to get worse we
moved quickly and didn't stay
on the top for long.Posted by Picasa

Raise & Sheffield Pike
Very cold/ icy/windy
on tops but come

Helvellyn 6 Jan 09
Went to see what it was
like on the edges & tops
however the most technical
part was getting onto the
fells (plus the top of Swirral)!
Lots of ice down low with a
sprinkling of snow over 450m,
by the look of the clouds there may be more snow. Posted by Picasa
