WALK NOTES
A lovely sunny day although it was very cold. The path taken today was via the Miners Track on the ascent and the Pyg Track on the descent. The ascent gave no problems as the snow on the ground was very firm. On the descent the path near the top had become very icy as there had been a lot of walkers on the mountain that day. While on the summit the views were great but as we were about to leave the clouds formed and we could see that we were about to be enveloped.
