Yesterday out was out with the lads from Bolton School in the Lakes. We had been hoping for a winter day, but the change in the weather has pretty much wiped the snow out. There is still the odd patch around and some snow in gullies, but it does not look like it is cooling down any time soon.
The day is in preparation for the up and coming winter week in Scotland. The lad are generally younger than last year, so it was good to see them out in some poor weather to see how they coped. Despite the wind, rain and general ming throughout the day, they all did really well. it was bleak on top of High Raise, and some good navigation was needed.
