Event description

Description

An arête is a sharp, narrow ridge between two valleys
formed by the action of two parallel glaciers and whilst there aren’t too many
in England and this walk takes in two of them. Starting from the village of
Patterdale we head steadily uphill before the first edge of the day. Striding
Edge is an excellent example of an arête and whilst not the scariest in the
country is possibly the longest at around 700 metres. It leads unerringly to
the summit of Helvellyn, England’s third highest mountain and then we return
via another ridge, Swirral Edge and back down to Patterdale. A classic Lakeland
walk that always features in top 10 British walks and something every walker
should have on their CV
