A wild day.

28th January 2016

It was a return to full winter conditions today. Unfortunately rain tonight, some snow the next couple of days though.

The freezing levels were rising throughout the day. It was moist around the 900 metre mark and as I plunged it into the snow it kept clumping up on my axe.

Clouds started to lift to around 700m or so.
