It was a clear night last night and very cold this morning in Wasdale. Once up above 600m, the wind added an extra chill factor and the snow was iced over which meant crampons and ice axe were definitely required. It all made the going quite slow but it was a really enjoyable winter walk and it was very quiet up there today – I didn’t see a single person or indeed a footprint!
