    As we both have been off the hill the last month or two we choose an easy first trip and had a walk up over Low& High pike,thick clag was our only companion as we crossed over to Dove crag

    We dropped down a little ways for water and were soon stamping down snow for camp, just a few minutes back from Hart crag summit
