A lovely day out on Helvellyn today. Lots of folks enjoying the good weather and the fresh snow. Unfortunately, far too many of them were inadequately dressed and equipped. I met so many people wearing trainers, wellies, and jeans. Lots of people were struggling high on the mountain on icy slopes. One guy I met said his guidebook was to blame – it didn’t mention that it might be snowy, he said. This, in mid February, and England’s third highest mountain.
