Helvellyn

Mission ++

This iconic route up the third highest mountain in the Lake District is a classic, using the famous Striding Edge ridge to gain the summit. Whilst the scrambling is relatively easy, it passes over steep and exposed terrain which always requires care, particularly if it isn’t dry. The descent via Swirral Edge is easier, and this route rejoins the path down at the beautiful Red Tarn.
