I had a quick trip out today with Pippa, up Helvellyn from Red Tarn, to see if the snow was good enough to climb. The buttresses are covered in a layer of re-frozen wet snow ice, which should mean that any routes high up are forming up nicely. Yahoo! Conditions weren't ideal for photo opportunities - too blizzardy. Call me on 07775 630 488 if you're interested in a winter adventure in the Lakes.
