Trig Point at Helvellyn Summit

Cor blimey. I was duped into climbing up the 950m Lake District peak Helvellyn this weekend just gone. Helvellyn plus the legendary Striding Edge. About 750 metres up my partner turns to me and says “you do realise this is the hardest one don’t you?”, meaning the hardest Wainwright peak to conquer. This was just after the bulk of Striding Edge and just before having to climb up a very scree-ey, almost vertical part of the hill. Not fun. The descent was even less fun. But I’ve done it and I just thought I’d scare (ha ha) SHARE some pictures on the blog. You’ll see from the photos why I was happy to put myself through such abject torture.

Sca Fell on Saturday. Meep.
