  • Helvellyn via the edges from Glenridding - Wed 18th Aug, 2021

    Want to burn 500+ calories on a classic lakeland route?
    Want to tackle Striding edge to reach the summit of Helvellyn?
    Ticking off Wainwrights? Want to knock another 3 off your list?


    Why not join us on a fully guided walk, led by a qualified mountain leader (also a first-aider and Registered Nurse). Starting from Glenridding, we will make our way towards the slopes of Birkhouse Moor before taking an ascent path which will get the calves and heart pumping! After a few snaps and a breather, we will then make our way towards the ‘hole in the wall’ (not a cash point!), the start of the path which takes us over Striding Edge and on to the summit of Helvellyn.


    This route is not for the faint-hearted or those not used to steep group with big drops! On our descent from Helvellyn via Swirral edge, we will make a small detour to the summit of Catstye Cam.


    The event is intended for those who have experience in the hills with sufficient fitness to walk for 6-7 hours at a pace of 2-3km per hour. We will journey at a comfortable pace with plenty of photo opportunities and re-fuelling stops.
