Is Striding Edge Closed?

Q. Can you tell me - is it true that Striding Edge is currently blocked to walkers?

If so, what is the reason and when is it expected that it will it be reopened??

Thanks

Alex Smith


A. I have not heard this and it sounds extremely unlikely.

Perhaps you are confusing the Striding Edge route up Helvellyn (England's 3rd highest mountain - see walks c213  c220  c264  c269  c427  ) with the Lord's Rake route up Sca Fell (England's 2nd highest mountain) from Mickledore which suffered a rock fall a couple of years ago. As a result, the Lord's Rake Route up Sca Fell is not recommended as a viable route in case there is another more serious fall.

Hope this helps
