    Not sure what happened to them to be honest. The photobucket link seems to be broken so I'd probably have to upload them there again, and I don't really feel like doing that any more.

    Besides Neil Eppey's photos cover the event fairly well already so they'd only duplicate what's already here.

    Excellent photos, Neil (except the one of me looking like a deranged Steptoe).

    Great pics Epps - from the warm glow of the BS hut to the chilly top of Pillar. Was rather cool in both senses to be on a snowy summit and fantastic , despite the lack of a view. I rather liked Beck Head too (with a view of the fab Wastwater).

    My first OM barn meet and an unforgettable experience, thanks to everyone for making it such fun.

    Lack of a view? There was lots of slushy sleet and clag to look at!

    Lee might look a bit downcast in the pic but the boy done good - full marks to him!

    Thanks for a lovely weekend everyone, especially Skip and Maria.

    Some photos of a great place and great people (and an excited canine)...

    Black Sail YH




    Saturday's navigator




    An 'easy' ungraded scramble up an unknown gully on Pillar




    Skip discoverd he'd left his union jack at home after conquering Pillar




    Group photo 1




    Group shot 2




    A very busy Great Gable summit, with hundreds of people trying to keep warm whilst paying their respects




    The sun finally made an appearance on Sunday (quite appropriately I guess)




    Once again, thanks for a great weekend everyone!

    I must improve my domino skills for next time, sorry about that Nick, haha ...

    Nice one(s) Ryedubs - at least I don't look like a psycho in your pics

    I'm not sure if that little scree gully up out of Great Doup has a name but it proved a handy bypass of the slushy slippery traverse above Sham Rock.

    The affable black dog has an uncanny ability to nav - it's always ahead and on the right path.

    Can't believe you would ever look like Steptoe

    Surprised about the weather on Saturday, when I looked a the forecast it looked good

    Oh, the forecast was good - it was only the actual weather that was shite

    The odd thing is that it was fine on the High Stile ridge just across the valley where the other group were walking and Kirk Fell looked clear as we descended. It seems it was only Pillar that caught it. In fact, I found it quite exhilarating up there with the ghostly dusting of sleet.

    So the moral of the story is that if you want to beat Maria at domino's either bribe her with loads of cookies and sweets or smuggle a bottle of tipex and a black marker into the game ?

    Glad you all had a great time and looking forward to meeting some of you in March

    Myself & Hedley Heap pitched just a little way from the hostel having walked in from Wasdale Head on the Saturday.

    Good to meet everyone & have a look inside Black Sail even though bothies, huts etc not my bag.

    It was good to have you drop by, lads

    BTW, here's another of Teesdale Viking's photos - Gable from the hut on Sunday morning:

    Sadly this is dependably a SARDA appraisal end of the week, so I won't have the capacity to go to, yet I'm going on the Black Sail meet in March so will want to climb Great Gable and offer my regards at that point.
