Climb Helvellyn

August 25 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm


The mountain of Helvellyn is the highest of Wainwright’s Eastern Fells and the third tallest mountain in the Lake District at 950m tall, making it a Furth Munro. It boasts some of the best scrambling – with the route via Striding Edge and Swirral Edge being one of the best scrambling outings in the Lake District.

Striding Edge and Swirral Edge is not only the must do route if you’re climbing Helvellyn, but the must-do route for anyone visiting the Lake District. The most popular Grade 1 Scramble in the Lakes, for good reason. The route starts off from the village of Glenridding on Ullswater, first ascending Birkhouse Moor before the route gets interesting over Striding Edge. This is an exhilarating, knife edged scramble that’s only for those with a head for heights. Not to worry though as our expert and experienced guides will keep you safe enabling you to enjoy the mountain and surrounding area which is stunning.

This is a big day out with an earlier start and later finish but it is well worth it. A big packed lunch and plenty to drink is a must for this trip along with good sensible footwear. We will send out a short essential kit list once booking is confirmed and we will be on hand to answer any questions beforehand.

A good level of fitness and a head for heights is a must for this trip along with being comfortable using hands to scramble over some sections of terrain. For any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
