Rounded off a busy but very enjoyable week by going to the Peak District yesterday and to Kinder, again did some ice axe practice as three of the group didn't go to the Lakes. Unfortunately we had a cut lip on the snow and guess who, yes quite right it was me, patched up I looked like that infamous German leader to the amusement of the others, suffice to say I had some stick. Still it was a nice day and there were lots about, the snow was very deep in parts. Next week hope to be in Snowdonia, take care all. :lol:

Take care in Snowdonia! You know it's a proper winter when you can do ice-axe practice on the sides of Kinder Scout 8)
