SMHC monthly Sunday walk. Windy going up the ladder not as ferocious along the top. Found shelter at summit for piece stop. Treacherous on the descent down the ladder. A lot of ill equipped people out funny the severe snow from last weekend is gone so everyone comes out to do a hill. Not much snow either on this hill or on the horizon. Spikes, crampons, Ice axe all redundant for today however lead boots would have been a help on the descentLizzieG19/02/2017
