Winter in The Lakes

Brown Cove Crags near Helvellyn

Graham and AndyC were out taking advantage of the good weather this weekend and AndyC has sent this brief report and some pictures:

Graham will correct me if I'm wrong but I think it was Brown Cove Crags near Helvellyn. Left Buttress grade II, lots of snow about but very thin and dodgy last pitch on crumbly rock and unfrozen turf. Avoided by abseiling into a grade I gully which was excellent with very good snow and continued to the top.
