Helvellyn

Helvellyn Trip Report (#12250)

Ascent via Swirral Edge across the summit (what a view) then descend over Striding Edge. The weather was hot, sunny and very clear, however the wind was still pretty strong at the summit and the shelter was a welcome break for a coffee.

We started the walk from Glenridding and it took us about 5 hrs. The two edges and the summit on a day like this was an experience of a lifetime.

*to anyone thinking of walking / climbing Helvellyn DO IT! but take care on the edges.
