I decided to take my partner up Helvellyn for my birthday. We climbed from Wythburn Church and by Nethermost Pike could only see 10 ft ahead, there being a snow blizzard blowing. Got to top under 3 hours. Clouds broke for 10 mins, what a sight. This is our first mountain, fantastic.I am 34 and my partner, bless him,is 53. Great way to spend a birthday. We are returning for my partners birthday in july to go again, this time from Glenridding and striding edge.
