Scafell.. Kids in a sweet shop..

Made the trip round to Wasdale today and Scafell didn't disappoint. I have climbed on Scafell in winter before but today it felt like I had been transported to a magical realm of winter climbing. I haven't seen so much opportunity for futuristic lines anywhere else before. Conditions were amazing. We tried a new line on the East buttress before deciding the ice was a bit brittle and the wind a bit strong and then headed round to the main crag, eventually darkness overtook us before we got up the chosen route of the day.

We suffered a bit from the kids in a sweet shop syndrome and should have been more focused on a single objective.

Lets just say we have some unfinished business.
