I did a wild camp at Red Tarn last February in full winter conditions on one of the coldest nights in Lakes and saw a couple of groups tackling Striding Edge up to Helvellyn and down Swirel Edge during the night time, which looked great in the moonlight.

I'm looking for someone to team upwith who would like to join me one late evening for a bit of a different challenge. I am fully kitted up for winter and have winter climbed in the Lakes and Helvellyn range over years so fully confident in my abilities.

Live just outside of the Merseyside area close to Ormskirk, Lancashire.

Cheers

Could be up for this. Would be better to pick a night closer to a full moon if possible.

Also interested.  Not getting out to the hills often enough, just fannying with road bikes.  (Based Urmston, South Manchester, for my sins.)

Cheers

By the same token you can extend your cycling right into late autumn and onwards from late winter by buying a good LED light and getting out there at night.

You can ride year round in this country.  Decent clothes and lights and away you go.

Nick,

Sent you an email. Friday 19th sounds like the best bet. Meeting up at YHA Helvellyn, Greenside, Glenrriding. Parking at the top end of the track. Time to be arranged. 

It's set to get colder next week so hopefully conditions will be better by then.

There’s been problems with parking at the YHA.
