Agree mark didn't feel comfortable trying it despite lots of others taking the plunge can handle the snow/ice but when combined with a gusty wind it can be a recipe for disaster .
Thinking of inviting john ,steve, andrew and norman next time a venture out i'll even supply them with flat soled shoes to make sure they never come back .

Not done that...think its a bit too scary looking at.it:)....halls Fell ridge is a less daunting walk up Blencathra.

Much shorter than Striding Edge. Also narrower in places, and the Skiddaw Slate which Blencathra is composed of is very slippery when wet.

The final pull up onto Foule Crag is much steeper than the exit from Striding Edge onto the Helvellyn summit plateau.

Over quickly but a wee bit more intense than Striding Edge. Best done before a descent of Halls Fell ridge which descends pretty much directly from the trig point.

Crampons and ice axes a must in winter conditions.

Yes a few times but not on this weather. Also Striding Edge a few times. Once met a woman sitting in the middle who said she suffered from vertigo!

You do well to hold a tablet steady enough. For taking fell walking, I suggest a small camera would be better than a DSLR - especially because of the size of the lenses. Almost as good - and much better than a point-and-shoot - is a micro four thirds camera. These are made by Panasonic and Olympus and their lenses are interchangeable. They're not cheap but, depending on which lens you use, they are pocketable.

My fuji bridge camera takes great shots including the odd panoramic 3 shot job but it needs a steady hand for accurate finish. Got a framed panoramic from Loughrigg fell a few years ago.
