Description

Automatically created from a GPX file - 2021-12-09.gpx

Day out after Storm Barra.

Snow on the ground from 650m, became unavoidable from 700m, with the top scoured by wind.
Crampons and ice axe carried but not required as snow was soft and easy to heal plunge etc.
Paths could easily be followed as the snow was not deep enough to completely cover them and also cairns were visible.

Area : Northern Fells

Generally this is the area to the north of the A66 which runs from Penrith to Cockermouth and the town of Keswick.
