After a week of work and crap weather I set off for Helvellyn this morning. Leaving Patterdale at 8:30am, the weather couldn’t have been any better… blue sky, sun, breeze and perfect winter conditions. Striding Edge was in full condition with a well worn goat track leading to the exit slope up onto the summit where some step kicking was required.
After passing along to the summit I dropped down Lower Man and around White Side and down to Glenridding. Pint time!
