Rode Keppel Cove/Raise/Sticks/Seldom Seen last night and lots of snow and ice on Top of Keppel and Raise lots of ice beneath the snow. Sticks and Seldom where riding very well it was -7 and 9pm 🙂 [url=https://flic.kr/p/H6w2BD]24067973_10156016797131474_6811090161448932779_n[/url] by Richard Munro, on Flickr
It is really trippy as the loose rocks are set like stiff flapjack and give maximum traction. Raise was a horror last night with the wind, but the snow was firm and filled in a few gaps. Sticks pass was dicey.
