A nice day's climbing A good day's climbing at Oxford then Thornhow Crags. The sun was out & little wind for the seven of us. We also (somehow) found ourselves at The Travellers Rest enjoying some Helvellyn Gold at the end of the day!
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.
Friends & Family New Year walk A short walk around Glenridding with the little ones. The North side of the valley was like spring & the South is still in winter! We also had to stop in The Travellers Rest for a warm drink/pint.
