Its been a very long time since I posted anything, but I'm back! I survived sailing, so keeping with the mountain theme, as this is supposed to be a mountain blog here's a nice picture of me climbing ice today, in the Lakes. There's some really good conditions out there at the moment, we climbed about 150m of nice plasticky ice today. We were out yesterday and had a good day but the conditions are really variable even within each corrie so it takes a bit of local knowledge or good old poking about to find good climbing. Its well worth it though, its been cold for over a week, there is a lot of soft snow in the gullies that should survive a fair thaw so its looking good for a while yet.
