Skiddaw Climbing Notes

Stuart Hewes from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Did Skiddaw Today. In the extreme Winter conditions. <br/> <br/>Advise novice walkers not to attempt. <br/> <br/>A lot of snow drift, recommend snow goggles. <br/> <br/>The route is iced over therefore use of spike pleats. Crampons not advised as terrain may damage them as a fellow walker broke theirs. <br/> <br/>Wind chill factor is severe <br/> <br/>Wind speed at Skiddaw peak is extreme can catch you off guard. <br/> <br/>Visibility almost whiteout along Skiddaw peak. <br/> <br/>Happy walking.
