Customer quote of the year...so far.

Well, we hear a lot of daft things from customers in the shop but today one fellow topped the lot.

Kez, while helping customers was asked

''Has Striding Edge been de-iced yet?''

What can you say? Does he think its on the councils gritting route perhaps?

Funny, but at the same time very worrying.

On a serious note the winter conditions on the fells continue to be very icy, so crampons and ice axes are essential.
