DSRT Tavistock in The Lake District

A week of winter hill walking and mountaineering in the Lakes with some of the DSRT Team provided a great excuse for some winter fun Type 1.

Two days of snow, ice and clear sun was a gift.  Clambered up Scafell Pike, St Sunday Crag, Dollywagon Pike, Helvellyn, Causey Pike, Crag Hill to name a few.  Dartmoor weather then caught us up and rendered the views anonymous.  It's been a while since I stayed in a bunk house and I had clearly forgotten the smell of drying rooms until after the first wet walk.  Ye gods, you cold hardly breathe in the fug of smelly clothing and boots.  Fruity isn't even close.

A few photos of the better bits:
