HELVELLYN

At 3,117 feet (950 metres), Helvellyn is England’s and the Lake District’s third highest peak, easy to get to, provides interesting and varied scenery, exhilarating views, has the added magnetism of the infamous Striding Edge…and is not to be trifled with.  The most popular routes are from Patterdale via Grisedale, or from the more touristy Glenridding on the shores of Ullswater. The first part of the climb is more like a relentless slog; thereafter it is at times a very testing scramble. The summit of Helvellyn is flat - an aeroplane once landed on it.
