It still mild

15th March 2009

Even though mild today there was quite a strong chilly wind blowing in exposed areas.  A few folk were out climbing today; the main gully lines are still complete and there is even some ice remaining on steep ground.  Rock fall is the main hazard at the moment.  This is enhanced over a period of time from many freeze thaw cycles which eventually loosens the blocks and due to the lack of snow leaves them exposed, and some end up a bit loose and teetery.  Be careful out there and mind what your pulling on!
