Revisit day out tackling edges under snow and ice bitter cold up here today very clear but very high dull sky.Trig still ok not much snow on top.Hard route this in winter takes you longer than you think ended up descending to glenridding in darkness not recommended with black ice all over the footpaths!

From Glenridding, experiencing Striding Edge and getting to the top of Helvellyn is a long awaited achievement and well worth the effort.

Started out from 05.40am from the car park at Wythburn and reached the summit at 07.10am on a perfect sunny and warm morning and had the place to myself. This is the way to climb mountains. Pure Magic!

Fantastic views - still a bit of snow about on the protected edges.
12th Mar 2012 13:29 by staggie34
Fantastic Day. Ascended Birkhouse Moor in the clagg then popped out above a temperature inversion on Striding Edge. Awesome views above the cloud. Scafell range, Great Gable, Skiddaw and Blencathra poked their summits above the cloud. Even got a Brocken Spectre!!!!
18th Dec 2011 12:45 by painterman61
Day in lakes shopping for a new shell jacket might as well do a winter ascent of helvellyn! Lots of snow big avalanche cornice collapse on left hand side of swirral edge today very cold wind views to die for on top.Trig covered in ice fb covered up but done it before so no worries, loads out on top today enjoying the winter wonderland.Even met the weather line fell top assessors going up and coming down!

Brilliant walk along striding edge to get to this one.
28th Sep 2011 15:31 by Ron Plasma
Go on. Youve all done it. You all know its worth the high score for the fun and games on both Striding and Swirrell. For the record - the late September heatwave meant 28 degrees in the valley, but STILL clouds skittling about the tops. Great views. Exciting climb. No crowds. OK 9

up Striding Edge and circled via Raise and Sticks Pass back to Glenridding. Perfect weather and great views. Fewer people on the summit than on Snowdon, but didnt hang around. More Wainwrights than trigs today.

16th Apr 2011 12:47 by PhilRichards
Up from Grisedale Bridge via Lower Man. Plenty of people about but minimal visibility meant it did not look too crowded! No views but I know it is at least worth a 9/10.
14th Apr 2011 12:30 by M0NJW
When the cloud cleared the view was fantastic! Remember to take pound coins for the lake district pay and display machines.

24th Sep 2010 11:51 by Brisey
A strong northerly wind was forecast so Dan and I abandoned the plan to use Striding Edge and took the shorter but steeper route up from Swirls by Thirlmere. The views were lost well before the summit which loomed sooner than I expected.

Fantastic blue sky day Helped lady and husband cragfast on badstep chimney on edge,went down swirrell edge and up catsecam.Loads of walkers on top!

Walked up the easy way from Glenridding and up Mires Beck and up to Hole-in-the-Wall and then along the top of Striding Edge, well you have to don't you, following a short slog up the scree slope the shelter was soon reached where it was time for lunch, then bagged the trig and set off back again along to Lower man, across to Whiteside and then took the path around the top of Red Screes and back down into Glenridding passing the Ski Club Hut and Youth Hostel. All in all a very good day out, and the bonus was it was clear on the top.
13th Aug 2010 09:09 by Theo D Lite
More like "Hell"velyn. I love this top and been here a few times but it's the first trig I've visited on my belly. Misty but dry with gusty winds at 60-70mph. Camped the night before under Dollywaggon Pike, so had the top to ourselves for as long as we needed
8th Aug 2010 12:00 by Trigglets
Walked up from Thirlmere. Cloud from around 2000'. However, it did clear whilst eating lunch and waiting for the rest of our party who had come via Striding edge. Good views of Ullswater and as far as Scotland.

Parked in the Glenridding CP, followed Birketts CLF walk C/HEL2, well marked paths all the way, over Birkhouse Moor, Striding Edge, Helvellyn summit, Swirral Edge then Catstycam, probably the best ridge walk in the Lake District. Trig point 120m NW of summit at NY 34170188 15158875 (949.147m). Previous visits 2/6/95, 8/6/1978 and 24/4/2004.

Found on a stag do, before I'd registered on this site, in some quite wet weather (Logged as GCGPTF on GC.com). Ascended via Striding Edge, then descended via Swirral Edge.

On a clear day views are spectacular. March is a cold time in the Lakes, our time to visit each year so we make the most of it. Trig is built of local stone and is in good condition. Ascended over Birkhouse Moor and Striding Edge, descended over Catstye Cam to bag the Wainwrights. A good day's walking.

28th Jul 2008 11:53 by staggie34
Ascended from Glenridding via Striding Edge with no queues! Good views but very hazy. Descended Swirral Edge and bagged Catseye Cam for the first time before heading back to car park. Very warm day. Went to Ramblers Bar in Glenridding for a welcome pint after walk and paid over £6.00 for a Guiness and a pint of lemonade! Mad prices.

Came up from Glenridding over Striding Edge, the cloud retreating before us as we climbed, to a very cold and windy summit alone apart from 2 others in the shelter. Trig has some slight damage to lower section, but nothing too serious considering the amount of handling it must get. Superb views all around, once the cloud lifted.

Come back Michael Fish, all is forgiven. The latest batch of forecasters got it wrong today.Outer shell, hat & gloves needed on summit in thick cloud. First of several mountains bagged on a 12-mile linear walk up Helvellyn Gill to Blencathra Mining Museum. Trig pillar stands alone some distance from the shelter. Couldn't see bugger-all, if you'll excuse the double negative.

Poor score only because as I was within 1/4 mile of the summit the cloud descended and there was not a lot to see! However 30 minutes after I had left the summit via Swirrel Edge the conditions became even worse - rain and wind plus cloud! I suppose I could say that I had the best of the day!!
25th Jun 2007 18:29 by Clanfield Rambler

Took the Greenside road from Glenridding and parked near the bunk houses followed path left side of Glenridding Beck up to sheepfold then path alongside Red Tarn Beck up to Red Tarn skirting round Catstye Cam which until this point had hidden any sight of Helvellyn and what a great view this is with the tarn nestling some 750 feet below Helvellyn summit with Stiding Edge and Swirral Edge marching up either side good place for a cup of coffee and decide which way up,went for Striding Edge, no need to follow the path up to the ridge via the hole in the wall its a easy climb straight up the bank between Low and High Spying How,good views from here,there was no striding over Striding Edge as there was still some snow and ice infact I crossed most of the ridge on all fours ! anyway I made it across and after a steep scramble reached the summit,wonderful views all round on a clear sunny morning descended via Lower Man and Whiteside Bank, I did Helvellyn in the mid eighties from the Thirlmere side and found that way up a bit of a drudge unlike the great walk I experienced today.
30th Dec 2006 14:00 by staggie34
Ascended vis Striding Edge and down Swirral Edge. Great stuff in poor weather. We got some good views though.
10th Oct 2006 14:13 by manonabike
Thick cloud limited visibility to a few yards, but the motorways up and down are easy to follow, first good climb for me following illness and first ever for two companions. We didn't care about the weather!

Trig iced over, so number not obtained. 80mph blizzard meant no chance to get the camera out, and no more than 5 mins on top was possible. Barrie blown over, and I crawled on all fours to approach trig. But the top was crowded with walkers and dogs!! Unbelievable!! Public

Lovely wintery conditions today. Howling gale on the summit - needed crampons just to stay upright on the sheet ice! Striding edge was particularly exciting, though thankfully sheltered from much of the wind. This has got to be one of my favourite hills, even in today's cloud a definite 10!

Staying at Striding Edge hostel with OTC family group. I've just arrived but with agenda of immediately having a lte evening walk as it's both clear calm warm weather and also pretty well full moon. Persuade Chrissie and Lisa to accompany me, so a night walk by moonlight up valley straight up the valley zigzags and over Whiteside, Raise and Lower Man. Fantastic peacful and tranquil. Back by 3pm to grab 5 hours sleep before going up again!!

An emotional day on son's 10th birthday for family's 1st 3000'er. My Dad dragged me up at the age of 11 (1972), so my lad went one better! Striding Edge most unpopular with wife, & daughter fell & hurt herself (temporarily)descending Swirral. Blazing hot sunshine gave hazy but distant views. Most welcome pints of Boddies at Travellers' Rest in Glenridding!

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1950 costing £48.15s.0d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/12 in the Workington block. Flush bracket S5948 was levelled for height also in 1952. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1984. Stone built pattern. Spider centre had lost original OS plug and is now plugged with bitumen. The pillar photograph was taken by my mother while I stood at the pillar. Bagged 2/07/1991, GRP.

Perfect winter round of Striding Edge and Swirral Edge. Shame we left the ice axes in the car. Very stupid to have carried on when we got to the snow and ice.

Ascent via Dunmail & Dollywaggon on very cold windy day. Fingers numb in the 30 seconds gloves were off to take picture.

Last hill in a long day from Kirkstone. Dead quiet on Fairfield/Red Screes, but they were all up here. Westmorland county top.

First of two visits. Made the mistake of doing it on a Bank Holiday - long tailbacks of pedestrian traffic on Striding Edge!
