Explore the Lakes
On a beautiful clear summers day it is an uplifting walk that can be undertaken with care by most reasonably fit individuals. However the weather can turn suddenly, and in poor conditions Striding Edge especially can be treacherous and potentially lethal. One rule of thumb often used is if you can see the summit of Helvellyn itself from Hole in the Wall then give it a go, if not then think twice! Always check the weather and mountain reports first provided by the lake district national park authority. Click here for more information on Helvellyn, and walks and photos of Helvellyn.
