Hellvelyn Via Striding Edge

< Back to Events

Whats Involved?

8am: Meet (at location, see below) and brief for days events.

8:30am: Set off to the base of Helvellyn and head to the summit of the iconic 3rd highest mountain in England. The route to the top is outstanding and the view from the top is even more impressive, 360* views of the great, history-rich Lake District. Once the summit is reached, the descent will be down the challenging Striding then Swirral edge. This famous descent will provide more views that are unparalleled to the regular day to day surroundings of life. Get out there and get it done! Its rewarding to say the least!

6pm: By this time we will have completed the ascent and descent of Helvellyn via Striding edge and will be back at the car park ready to leave.
