The Lake District Weatherline assessors say the high ridges have bare rock, wet snow, and ice, so an ice axe is essential for anyone traversing steep ground above the snowline, and crampons should also be carried in case steep hard snow and ice is encountered.
Their report says turf remains unfrozen and the snow in the gullies is very soft, so climbing should be avoided to protect the fragile environment.
