A wonderful weekend had.
I had never done anything like this before. The snow was crunchy and the arete was very exciting and humbling!
The route took us a very long time due to a very slow ascent and then my own slow descent as the pain in the knees kicked in.
We couldnt have asked for a better day. The sun was splitting the skies.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
