Cold, snowy and blustery with gusts of 126mph!

A good winters day to look at winter climbing ropework for the Hindleap outdoor centre staff...!
After a stormy wet night and more early morning rain the storms continued but the rain turned to snow as the temperatures rapidly dropped. The refrozen snow was quite crusty at first but by late afternoon was quite solid and good for climbing on and building snow belays. Lot's of great gusts and spindrift and everyone seemed to enjoy the challenging conditions. The easy to mid-grade gully routes should be good over the next few days.
