The everybody's choice route of Striding Edge is a fine ascent though my favourite is up from Thirlmere. Which I first accomplished with my sister, it is more the descent which is my motivation for that side. Just watching Thirlmere unroll in front of me is re-assuring in it's pleasantness. It is a romantic mountain well worth enjoying, spending the day on it's slopes on a warm summer day is a perfect trip out for the day whilst in The Lakes.
