Plus, lots of people underestimate the Lakes in winter. I have brought several people off Striding Edge (in wellies?) in Winter and Swirral catches far too many - including a young lad this year already.
Thanks B A Nana - I thought it was simple 1 and 2 but couldn't quite remember. Great easy climbs in fun locations with super finish by the shelter!! Last time I climbed G1 and came back down Striding Edge was when we met to guy in wellies on the little chimney (ish) at the end end of the edge. Nor rope required for the climb, but we needed it to get him off! The problem in the Lakes is that unlike Scotland too many think that the hills are too low and therefore conditions are really severe. Sadly the consequences of such underestimation can be fatal.
Anyway ndt, enjoy the ride and stay safe!
