It has been pretty warm for a few weeks now, rock climbing has been the order of the day, Esk buttress being the preferred location.

This week it has been very cold at night and very warm during the day (in the Sun). In shady areas seeps have formed good water ice. I think you would find something to play around on, possibly around the rocks below Bowfell buttress (under the Climbers traverse) or in some of the gullies at Boat Howe, but I haven't seen any routes completely formed.

Cloudy and a bit warmer today. Some forecasts are giving out a mixture of snow and rain on the fells for the next few days the turf is frozen so lets hope it doesn't get too warm and wet.
