Helvellyn's Edges in Winter
Another tough day on Helvellyn today...
I had the absolute pleasure of guiding Sophie around Helvellyn's edges. Today was Sophie's first time in crampons and so after an intro we ventured up Swirral Edge which she not only tackled easily but loved. The summit again had an alpine feel, from which we down climbed the steep snow bank at the top of Striding Edge and then enjoyed a 'summer' traverse of it.
A third day on Helvellyn in three days with three awesome sets of clients - thanks all!
More One Day Winter Skills courses available this week! Join us on the 27th, 1st or 4th for a day of getting to grips with winter walking.
