Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team are warning walkers to take extra care, after a man fell 600ft to his death on Scafell on Monday (December 10th).
High fells are still in full winter conditions and they say ice axes and crampons are essential, especially when climbing north facing gullies.
They're also advising climbers to ensure they have good knowledge of the area, and that a map, torch and compass are imperative in poor conditions.
