A great walk to the top of Helvellyn in cumbria in bad weather. Helvellyn stands at 3118ft and there are many routes to the top some hard and some rather easier. To the West of Helvellyn you find Thirlmere and and with the A591 right by it you will find a couple of large car parks we parked in the one called Wythburn . From the Car park just head East uphill, its hard going for the first mile but it levels off a bit there after however it is nothing challenging just watch your footsteps in bad weather. The views were great to start with then the cloud come down and spoilt everything I’m afraid we could not even see Striding Edge. A great walk but best enjoyed in better weather. PLease view our Viewranger Link.
