They were giving a great weather forecast for today and I wanted to go out to check on the hill conditions. Gary, who is currently managing the building work for the installation of our new biomass boiler, decided to come out with me on his day off. The Helvellyn Ridges are in wintery condition with a bit of snow ice, notably at the top of Swirral. There’s a sprinkling of snow on the rocks so it’s all quite slippery, requiring care and an axe and crampons are advisable. We passed a couple of guys who”d been on an unfruitful recce to Brown Cove. It was nice day out on the Ridges though, and quite chilly. To see more recent photos click here.

My friend Nuru Sherpa emailed me recently asking me to offer places on a trip he is organising to the North side of Everest. Nuru is exceptionally strong and experienced, having led Sherpa teams on a huge number of professional expeditions to the Himalaya. He is also very widely travelled, and we met up a couple of times last summer near Zermatt where he was working in the Matterhorn Hut for the whole season. If you have the necessary experience and are interested in joining Nuru on Everest in the forthcoming season drop me a line!
In addition to my Journal entries I post photos to my Facebook Page whenever I go out on the hill.
