Winter is a-coming... 

That's right. It's getting colder. Nights are getting earlier. Frost is building up on my impressively-bad-at-heat-conducting windscreen. Ice is on it's way - I hope. 

There's snow atop Pen Y Fan. (Come on, a little bit at least). Kinder Downfall is rumoured to be in the best nick it's been in for centuries.... (slight fib perhaps). And there's a buzz about South Wales' winter climbers in anticipation for what will hopefully be a very cold season. With all the rainfall this summer, the ground is nicely saturated and runoff is high, which should - in theory - lead to some nice fat ice conditions if it gets cold enough. 

Watch this space.... maybe whilst sharpening your axes.

  1. Anyone had a sniff yet? Maybe looking good for weekend of 15/16th? http://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/Penyfan/6day/mid
