Winter Climbing in The Lakes

Some winter walking last week in the beautiful and inspiring mountains of the fabulous Lake District... High Pike was my destination but I only made it to the summit of Low Pike before I ran out of time to get back in daylight. Still, an amazing day as the sun cleared through the cloud on the way up.
The scenery was spectacular, as was the snow, and it had drifted heavily in several places. The crampons were on for most of the climb and it was pretty icy in places, not to mention the peaty bog that I inadvertently stumbled into, right up to my knee. Managed to escape its clutches though thankfully.

Stuff like this is just great for the soul.
