A mixed start to the winter ……….

So it’s been a bit of a mixed start to the winter, but if you know where to go there is still safe and enjoyable mountaineering to be done. I seem to have used my head torch rather a lot so far this winter; not sure if that is late starts, but certainly had a few finishes after dark. Lots of early snow allowed some great skiing, but most of this left, which is often the way. Some of the climbing has been in deep snow, some in rain and some in ‘thin’ conditions. It’s windy right now, but looking like winter again. 🙂
