Helvellyn - the first ascent - Sept 2002
Got to Red Tarn and still looked clear, so we headed up Swirral Edge
Got to the top. Mist down, wind howling - no visibility, time to come down!
Back down, knee trouble for my companion hence walked down backwards to the Travellers Rest for much needed R&R!
Route - Glenridding - Lantys Tarn - Hole in the Wall - Red Tarn - Swirral Edge - Helvellyn - Swirral Edge - Red Tarn - Glenridding via Green side Mine
Weather: Good at the start - but just as we got to the top the mist descending and the wind was blowing!
