All gone (well almost)
The thaw did a good job of stripping the snow with most of the crags looking bare and black. However there are some slithers of ice still hanging in.
My friends Tom, Will and Garth found grade III ice to play on up in Nameless Cwm. I went up to the Ladders today with Si and Greg and climbed Icefall Lefthand. This was complete and in good condition taking screw runners and lots to swing at. Two other teams were on Eastern Gully and there appeared to be some good ice at its base.
Through the day the top of the crag was starting to hoar up and the turf had certainly refrozen.
More snow later this week.
