/ Easy lake routes for soloing ?
No2 Gully on Helvellyn, as already mentioned would be ideal, as would a lot of the Grade I gullies in the Lakes.
Sorry, but I think it is grossly irresponsible to give advice on soloing to someone I don't know, given the possible harsh consequences. I wish others would take this on board.
Agreed. Anyone that can't use a guidebook and then make a decision based on that, their own experience, and some on the ground judgement making as to some routes, shouldn't be soloing anything IMO.
I'm not going to tell anyone they shouldn't be soloing. It's their choice and the hills are all about freedom. But I'm not going to be complicit in those risks unless I've got a very good feel for what they're capable of.
