Great days climbing/hiking. Tough if your fitness isn't great but still manageable. Wear good footwear and don't over pack your bag. Water/Food/fresh clothes. boom!!

Simple route which at the summit provides excellent views. Very stony so decent hiking boots are a must!

This route should probably be named “Helvellyn via Swirls Carpark” it is a bit of a plod, but the most direct & probably easiest route up Helvellyn. It is not particularly inspiring. The views are great (and the only reason I’d give it 4*s).

An interesting alternative way up is to scramble up the stream that much of the lower path follows ~grade 1. Coming down you can make a loop heading north towards Raise and coming down the fells on that side of the bowl. Be careful to cross the stream away from the cliffs.

Beautiful and difficult hike. I believe I took a different trail that still led up to the top of Helvellyn. Great views along majority of the hike. I was in a group of 12, and it took us about 8 hours from start to finish.
