Nice Ice

Well today I ventured out onto Sergeants Gully and Parsley Fern, it was a stunning day, probably one of the best I have ever had out on easy ice/snow gullys in North Wales. The weather was alpine. Blue Skies, no wind and freezing.

Sergeants was in excellent condition although some of the upper falls were banked out with snow, and Parsley Fern gully that had been a swim on Saturday according to a friends was in much better condition, with the snow really starting to form decent neve. The Summit on Crib Y Drysgl was solid neve, and the view across at the Trinity face was unbelievable. I have never seen it look so good with not a single piece of rock visable as snow and rhime had turn the face totally white.
Anyway, with the weather set to be cold all week, the chance of Central Ice Fall and Cascade coming into condition seems quite likely, as they were looking good today, with a few more days freeze, it will hopefully thicken up.
