Striding Edge*** 1
[Craig and Derek picking their way along Striding Edge (Grade 1)., 2 kb]863m. Walk in from either Patterdale or Glenridding to Helvellyn's south eastern ridge, from the hole in the wall you start the ridge proper. Follow this all the way to Helvellyn's flat summit, a path handrails the ridge just below the crest for less exposure.

Ticklists: Sunny Side Up.
