Winter conditions – Wetherlam wild camp

Bad idea… very bad idea… That’s all I was saying whilst being blown up Wetherlam last week. It was brutally cold and the ice was becoming more and more prevalent as I stumbled around searching for my head torch.

To start us off, Daniel chose yesterday to try his first ascent of Sharp Edge … Continue reading
