It was a lovely sunny day. The start of the walk through the disused quarries was an easy one. I then approached the line of snow and ice. The walk from below Low Water to the summit of Coniston Old Man was quite difficult and very icy. There was also a new fall of snow on the ground. The tops of the fells were icy. On the descent from Swirl How down Prison Band the snow was very deep and as on the ascent there was no clear path. However I did meet several walkers during the day. A great day full of excitement.
