Victoria Bates walked up on May 12th, 2017 [from/via/route] Glenridding
Kevin Foster climbed on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn. - The route I took was a new approach for me; leaving the 'hole in the wall' track which leads direct to Striding Edge I followed a minor path to the right climbing to the wall running over Birkhouse Moor. A hidden stile negotiated this substantial structure. Good job I didn't bring Henry though. Lugging a 30 Kg Labrador over that would have been hard work. Near the top of the final climb I encountered a couple in their golden years ( he was a sprightly 79) who asked me the way to Striding Edge! They had previously climbed Cat Bells and The Dodd and thought they would have a go on Striding Edge. They quickly changed their minds when I pointed it out and said it was a scramble not a walk. In the end I think they headed for a lunch stop at Red Tarn before descending back down the main path to Glenridding.
Richard Marchant bagged on October 28th, 2010 [from/via/route] From Glenridding up on to Birkhouse Moor to Striding Edge-Helvellyn-Swirl Edge-Catstye Cam down to Red Tarn up to the Hole in the Wall and followed the footpath down in to Grisedale and cut back up to Lanty's Tarn and down to the car in Glenridding. [with] My oldest son James. [weather] Overcast but dry and the cloud level was above Helvellyn, also very light winds. - First time for James on Striding Edge.
