I couldn’t resist chipping in. It was 25th January 1986. Here is the account from my log:
“25 Jan. Brilliant day. Best in the Lake District for some time. Bright, sunny, clear, no wind, warm for January. Fair bit of snow on the tops. Good crampon snow, icy in places. Wore crampons virtually all day. Not enough for skiing. With John Barnard, Frank & Jennifer, Andrew Hindmoor, Mark Robinson, Simon Cook. Striding Edge, at the end descending into Nethermost Cove. Up Nethermost Gully. Enjoyable but quite easy snow, a little soft. Two interesting ice pitches. Steepest at the top but no cornice. Up to Helvellyn summit (crowded). Lunch. Simon and Mark stayed to do another gully. Helvellyn Lower Man. Ridge walking to Whiteside. Excellent view: Galloway, Lake District Peaks, Cross Fell, Ingleborough. On to Raise, Stybarrow Dodd, Watson’s Dodd. Retraced to Stybarrow Dodd admiring views on the way. Greenside. John stayed to photograph the sunset. The rest of us to Hartside and back. Down to Nick Head, then down the path to the lead mine. Back to Glenridding in full moonlight. Both pubs shut!”
Have a nice weekend. Andy

The 7th Anniverary party at Pete’s house and the cake made by Rosy.
The input data for the Mensa question are slightly wrong. Actually 3 peeled off from the ridge (JB, DC & GT) not 2. Andy

Apparently the two-wheel water mill we passed was formerly a bone mill. See Derbyshire Heritage website:

I have been asked again about attaching pictures to meet reports on the message board, so here’s another reminder of my original message posted last year. Andy
Be careful. A climber died there this year. See:
