850m. Helvellyn's north eastern ridge, can be approached from either Glenridding or Patterdale. Usually done with Striding Edge as a horseshoe. Nice exposure but a little short.

Glenridding Circuit

davren1977 03/May/15 AltLd

An early start for this day trip. Was pouring down from the off with snow visible through the low cloud. With a very tricky climb over striding edge onto Helvellyn with a like wise tricky descent in knee deep snow via Swirral edge. A good decent pleasing walk but absolutely drenched.

atom 18/Apr/15 Solo

Ran down as part of the horseshoe. Small patch of snow at the top and frost on the shadow side

Went up via White Side and down Swirrel Edge. Done this way as the wind was better this way around - torrential rain for most of the walk plus it was fairly gusty. With soldiers for Stu McHenry's Sqn.
