This was great fun, one of my first summits ever and first out of the US. Very fun climbing with 'postcard' views. The folks in the area and on the climb were some of the friendliest people I've met traveling.

Just up this weekend for the most recent time. Very strong winds on the top, with a fun ice step above Squirrel Edge (with bucket steps).

This was one of my very first mountains I ever climbed and I still remember it to this day, drizzle with the cloud base just sweeping over the hole in the wall, clambered over striding edge, with a bit of help at the end. That won me over for ever. Since then Helvellyn is my second most climbed peak, in sun, rain, snow hail, blizzards, hurricanes, the usual weather for the lakes, but come what may whatever the weather whichever the route, you'll always have a good days climb/hike/ramble on Helvellyn! Oh and MountainManJohn see you up there again no doubt!

Climbed via Striding Edge on a boiling hot summer's day. Continued back to Patterdale over St. Sunday Crag. Great mountain.

Not sure but think its the best. Last went to Helvellyn in Jan. Great winter route Striding Edge first, up onto the top, met Alan Hinkes, played around and came down Swirrel. Have done the mountain many times in all weathers......always great to be there. It seems to get the most snow too.
