Been running up Helvellyn this morning. Climbed one of the gullies on Brown Cove crags (Good Neve at the top) before dropping down the snow field right of Viking buttress. Although not hoared Viking buttress was in ok condition with bombproof turf and snow on the ledges. After Viking Buttress I did V corner and wound around a bit following the most continuous ice and snow line, I finished off with number 2 gully. I think Helvellyn will probably give the most wintry outing at the moment and it is in good condition for most of the lines.
There should be some water ice forming in places like Blea Water, Window gully(Great End), and Cold Lazarus ( Hart Crag). You just have to go and have a look.
