Mike Peacock in Cwm Lloer today

(Email from Mike Peacock)

Hi Andy,

I've been out into Cwm Lloer today. I took a friend up Equinox (I) for his first winter route. It's a short route below the East Ridge that zigs then zags up easy snow ramps. Very pleasant but far too short. The snow in the cwm was still excellent, but was becoming soft on the ridge in the sun. We stopped to chat to a couple who had done The Headwall, and two others topping out on Icefall Gully on the Black Ladders. Very alpine conditions anyway. Sunglasses and sun cream advised! Let's hope this snow hangs round for a bit longer yet.
