    Had a job standing up in this.

    Very painful, the spray seemed to be freezing forming ice particles.

    I have seen people ice-climbing it in the winter.

    As far as waterfalls go, it is quite rubbish in calm weather, but spectacular in the winter - whether frozen or being blown back on itself.

    In fact, the whole Kinder Scout plateaux is at its best when frozen.

    Yeah, more of an upfall last Sunday.

    I agree about Kinder being best when its frozen. A lot easier to get about without being knee deep in peat.

    I guess its along time since it was possible to do any ice climbing on it as it just doesn't get cold enough for long enough nowadays but this was what it was like last year with the wind and cold.http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/forum/f...t/4/UTN/21128/

    You'd be surprised then, I hear there were people climbing it beginning of last week and I've seen pictures of it being climbed a couple of years ago too. Only that cold for the odd day or two though, I grant you.
