Blazing Winter vs. The Beast from the East...

A few pictures from a hike up Helvellyn in the Lake District on 22nd February 2019…full sun, 16°C

And some from the Old Man of Coniston on 28th February 2018, bitten by the Beast from the East, -5°C with wind chill to -17°C. Ice axes, crampons, all phone batteries dead from hypothermia.
