I was climbing at Great End yesterday. All of the gullies were in condition as were the buttresses, a layer of wet new snow was sitting over the hard neve but everything seemed fairly stable. The freezing level was above the top of Great End for a time yesterday which was only helping the consolidation of the new snow. Today has once again been cold and clear, it has been quite warm in the sun. Ice is starting to form again at all levels but the higher you go the better things will be.
Bowfell buttress was looking to be in good condition today. For ice I would probably head to scafell this weekend.
