Helvellyn

6 May

Fantastic day’s walking in the Lake District.

A last minute whim lead us to Glenridding to walk up Helvellyn via Striding Edge, and back again down Swirral Edge. The weather was good for walking: still, clear, and for the most part sunny and cool (although we did have about 40 minutes of snow!) We think the walk was about 8.5 miles, and fairly easy going, apart from the scramble along Sharp Edge and up onto Helvellyn.

Most of DD&H were in Skipton for a weekend of walking, but a select group of us that hadn’t been able to head off to Skipton enjoyed today’s walk. Definitely a fantastic day!
