This was a really nice day with plenty of sunshine. It was my first ascent of Helvellyn and in fact turned out to be a great experience. Joined up with two walkers from Yorkshire from Striding Edge onwards. The walk along Striding Edge and the final ascent of Helvellyn was absolutely brilliant. I didn't know what to expect on Striding Edge but it was a real thrill and I think it was easier than I expected.
