The top - first one up and it was worth it!
Set off at 06:00 determined to get up there and conquer striding edge for the first time
Route - Patterdale - Hole in the Wall - Striding Edge - Helvellyn - Swirral Edge - Red Tarn - Hole in the Wall - Patterdale
View form Hole in the wall - blue sky - time to hit the edge!
Doesn’t look much but try coming down it at 7 in the morning!
Striding Edge in the haze...
Back down Swirral in time for a late breakfast
