Beautiful, sunny,clear winters day. Views inspirational all the way through the walk. Ascent over striding edge but had difficilty in snow/ice conditions. Followed "bigfoot" in crampons up final scramble through poor powdery snow. 5 - 10 mph winds up top. Im sure i could see my house in yorkshire.Will have to do it again in the summer.
