Abstract

HE first Sunday of last July waa a hot day in the Lake District; but as the morning ’bus made its cheery way up Bomwdale the driver remarked, “ First time I’ve known the snow last till July ”. Up in the Great End gullies and on the north side of Esk pike the drifts could still be found. That this waa unusual can be judged from earlier climbers’ writings forty years ago, which used to mention that the snow in Custs Gully ‘ frequently lasted into June ’. More interesting perhaps, because mom noted in the past, are the snowbeds near the top of Helvellyn. Last year several drifts lasted till mid-July on the East side of Great Dodd and Stybarrow Dodd ; there were on that Sunday small drifts on Fairfield and Dollywaggon Pike. On Helvellyn itself, for the first time for many years, two small spots remained above Red Tam, and a big drift lasted at the very head of Brown Cove, just below the col leading to the Low Man. That week-end it waa roughly 30 yards wide, 60 yards up and down the slope and four to five feet deep. This lest we
