Winter Training on Scafell – 12th February 2012

The low cloud led to the cancellation of the planned helicopter practice with HMS Gannet on Sunday However, 13 team members took advantage of the conditions to brush up their winter skills. Whilst it was a warm day and the snow was beginning to soften there was plenty of ice on the broken ground to the right of Scafell Shamrock. Two groups ascended this picking out the best ice and then finished up Easy Gully to reach the chockstone on Lord’s Rake. Another group ascended Lord’s Rake and the West Wall Traverse to reach the summit and then descended via Foxes Tarn and and Mickledore.
