I was out with Sharon today who wanted to get on so harder mixed ground. We climbed the Messenger which was quite hard going due to the foot of fresh snow that needed clearing all the way up the crux pitch. The climbing was excellent with all turf well frozen on the route. We came back down and climbed Hidden Chimney Direct. Some kind people had cleared this for us so it wasn't long before we where bachk in the car oark after a great day in great weather. The Mess of Pottage was a busy place today with teams on the Honey pot, Messege, Pot of Gold, the Haston Line and many variations of Jacobs edge. There is a lot of fresh snow, so use your judgement uf your heading out over the next few days.
