Great End, Lakes 18-02-12

Back in the Lakes today and the plan was to have a look over some leading.  Finding snow was going to be the first challenge, so we put all our money on Custs Gully.

A fresh dusting of snow and drop in temperature to below freezing gave the day a wintry feel, but there was still a lot of water running off the crags after overnight rain and a general lack of old snow about.

Pulling around into Custs I was surprised by the amount of snow still in it, there was a few gaps and mixed steps but it was generally all good, even some ice to place screws in and make some threads…

The other main Gullies were not complete but there was still some old ice about.
