Latest: 10/03/2014 16:00 FELL TOP CONDITIONS REPORT for Helvellyn summit at 13:00 on Monday 10 March 2014. The Lake District fells are largely free of snow and ice, but large areas of snow do remain in sheltered areas above 800m and anyone going onto the high fells should be prepared to encounter the occasional deep patch of snow. The eastern side of the Helvellyn range retains the largest coverage of snow, with up to 90cm in drifts and hollows above 800m. The steep final exit ramp from Swirral Edge is still covered with a considerable amount of unavoidable deep snow. An ice axe is essential for the safe negotiation of this section both for ascent and descent, and crampons are also recommended as the upper few metres were frozen solid today. There are deep cracks in the cornices above east facing slopes, some of these 6m back from the edge, so do keep well back from the edge in these locations. Temperature: Plus 4.7 deg C. Maximum wind speed: 5.6 mph. Wind chill: Plus 3.5 deg C. Average wind speed: 3.7 mph.
