Cold Wind.

There is a very cold NE wind blowing today with frequent snow showers, Exposed turf will be freezing from approx 600m upwards, I was at about 300m this morning for work and it was starting to freeze down. Quite a bit of water ice appears to have formed very quickly around the head of Langdale under Bowfell Buttress etc. No new snow laying on the fells around langdale. N gully on Bowfell Buttress looks complete and the old snow will be solid. Hellvelyn will be giving the best climbing on old snow at the moment a bit more snow will be needed to bring somewhere like Gable into nick.
