January 2015 – Patterdale

Winter snow arrived in time for our weekend staying at Patterdale YHA. For our Saturday walk, the weather was uncertain but despite some high winds, the cloud base stayed above the summits all day. We did an 11 mile round, using ice axes and crampons for much of the way, over Hart Crag to Fairfield returning via St. Sunday Crag. It will be hard to beat such a classic round with such fantastic views and snow covered ridge walking.
