Description
Waypoints (0)

This trail is an extension of the main ascent of Helvellyn via Striding Ridge. Instead of descending via Swirral Edge (which can be difficult with people coming up), this route goes further north before descending. This is a much quieter descent, and the trail is well established which would make it relatively easy to find in poor weather

Up via Striding Edge, gentle descent via Little Man and the dam. Amazing views, well worth the hard rock climbing up to the summit
