Description

Join us and other like-minded individuals on our guided walk ‘Helvellyn Via Striding Edge’. Striding Edge is severe mountain ridge with breath taking views, but don’t under estimate it. If you aren’t an avid hill walker we highly recommend you book onto our guided walk and enjoy it knowing you are in good hands.

The summits we take in on this walk are:

• Birkhouse Moor 718 metres / 2356 feet
• Helvellyn 950 metres / 3117 feet
• Catstycam 890 metres / 2920 feet

Where to meet?

Outside Glenridding Tourist Information Centre

There is a large pay and display car park in Glenridding

What do I need to bring?

Once you’ve booked you will receive a recommended kit list. The main items though are:
• Waterproof jacket and trousers
• Walking boots
• Lunch (picnic style, no alcohol)
• Water (1L minimum)
• Backpack (to carry lunch etc
• Any personal medication (such as inhaler)
• Hat and gloves

The walks are limited to eight people due to climbing striding edge and are sold on a first come first serve basis. If the day we have selected each month doesn’t work for you or you’d like a private guided walk, please get in touch.

With the severity of striding edge we will only climb it in dry conditions and our guides will make the judgement on the day, we may do an alternative route via Swirral Edge.
