Unfortunately I was at work yesterday, I did manage to escape for long enough between shifts to do yet another ascent of Bowfell Buttress. It was buried under snow and without secret knowledge of gear placements etc it would have been slow going. The turf was Ok but would have frozen better without all the snow. Quite a lot of people out but managed to get past everyone as they all went off route.

Flat Crags was climbable yesterday as was North Buttress and Cambridge Crags, one team making first ascent of Mindbender.

Hoping that steeper buttress routes don't get stripped by the thaw that is forecast between now and Monday afternoon before cold conditions return. It should bring classic gullies into good condition.
