A Wainwright Walk with Julia Bradbury: Helvellyn
Starting at the church in Patterdale village. The walk then heads away from Ullswater taking a gentle stroll along Grizedale Valley. This walk then leads you to the hole-in-the-wall. Up ahead is the vast combe of Helvellyn. From up here you start you ascent up Striding Edge. You have a last short steep scramble as you reach the top. The summit is a short gentle stroll along and then you have made it!

Alfred Wainwright’s verdict:
Striding Edge is the finest ridge there is in Lakeland.”
