Expedition Helvellyn

With the weather bringing the fixture list to a stand still, Members of Ormskirk's first team ventured up to the Lake District over the weekend to tackle Helvellyn.

Conditions were favourable at first but the weather soon turned and in rolled the hill fog bringing a deluge of snow with it.

We persevered but the going was tough and getting worse.
So in the interests of safety we turned back at around 850metres, desperately close to the summit
