Heading for Frostbite (Expand pics)
Gloves / Snowshoes
Glad to see you lot are getting snow as well. Iíd emphasise the importance of gloves and of putting them on. Itís easy to underestimate a slope in winter because itís no problem in summer. You find yourself committed and on something precarious so you donít feel like taking off your rucksack to get crampons, axe or gloves. It happened to us this February and one of the party (with superb gloves in his pack) got frostbite. On a windless blue sub-zero day heíd been sticking his hand in the snow for balance.

Kernowclimber have you any advice on snowshoes. Iíve just done my second 10k in 6 hours walk (crawl) through powder in my local hills. Itís improving my stamina but not my temper. Are they good, have you a good source, whatís a good make, anything to watch in purchasing?

Cnoc na SleŠ: Not To Be Judged On Size

A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
