Quite frankly horrible on top! Last 400m to summit was almost blizzard like. Other than that great day - crisp and clear but very snowy on the tops. Ice axe came in handy at a few hairy moments. Low Pike - High Pike - Dove Crag and Hart Crag - ascent from Ambleside starting and ending at the YHA. With GFE.Fionalevey15/12/2017
