Patterdale (NY 394
Patterdale - Hole-in-the Wall - Striding
Helvellyn - Swirral Edge -
Distance: 7.8 miles
Total Ascent: 925 metres
Time Taken: 3 hours 30 minutes
Weather: Fine drizzle and low lying
It seems like an age since I have been out
but regular viewers will know why; it has been a lot of hard
work for us with setting up the shop and the business. It
will all be worth it though hopefully, but it was great to
get out in the fresh air again this morning even if the
weather was not the best after a week of lovely sunshine and
where better to go than Striding Edge?
Come on, we haven't been out for ages!
I don't think we'll have any views today looking at
the low lying cloud on Birkhouse Moor and in Grisedale.
Casper in for an early bath in Grisedale Beck.
Birks Crag across Grisedale from the start of the
climb to the Hole-in-the-Wall.
Suddenly, a fleeting glimpse of Birks through the
The head of Grisedale.
Saint Sunday Crag.
Grisedale from higher up the climb.
Birks and Grisedale looking towards Patterdale.
Catstycam appears fleetingly from the
Hole-in-the-Wall. That was the last time I saw anything of it today.
Heading across Striding Edge.
The Dixon Memorial on Striding Edge, erected 1858.
Billy Big Tongue!
Casper leads the way across Striding Edge.
No, that's the wrong way Casper.
Casper fittingly guards The Gough Memorial on
Helvellyn. There were no views from here today...
...or from Catstycam...
...or from Birkhouse Moor as the mist and drizzle was
set in for the morning now.
