Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Helvellyn Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Helvellyn

Kevin Foster walked up on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies (cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn). - This was actually my second visit to Helvellyn this year. My earlier visit had been via Catstyecam and Swirral Edge with my friend Peter (and my faithful Labrador Henry). Henry had struggled a bit that day (well he is 10 and technically older than me now in adult years) which influenced my decision to leave him at home today. In hindsight I think he would have managed the route over Striding Edge I took. After taking a few photos and joining the crowds at the wind shelter to eat my lunch I set off (alone) in the direction of Nethermost Pike. The crowds made their way down Swirral Edge or towards Helvellyn Lower Man.

Andrew Johnson climbed on October 2nd, 2019 [from/via/route] Bramcrag quarry. Car left in Grasmere. Bus to Thirlmere dam road then bike to Bramcrag quarry, [weather] Sunny weather

[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.

Down Tongue Gill. Bus back to Stanan [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy with a strong east wind - Steep decline from Dollywagon and what a climb up Seat

Nick Dobson bagged on July 25th, 2018 [from/via/route] Glenridding [with] Margaret,Ralph, & Kate [weather] Sunny day with bright blue skies - Kate could'nt be bothered with the 10 minute amble from Swirrall Edge to Catstye Cam top,so the usual suspects duly completed it before returning to collect her on route to the days main objective Helvelyan. Fantastic views all round from a mega summit, waited a long time for this moment.
