Weather: Warmer with sunny spells. 8°C

After a dull start the day seemed to brighten for a while and I had a climb to Red Screes using the direct route via Kilnshaw Chimney. This is a great way to ascend quickly but care must be taken in winter conditions – the chimney was full of ice and snow today. The exit from it is very near to the summit and if you like a scramble it is well worth a go.
