Helvellyn and Catstycam

A walk up Helvellyn - up via Striding Edge, down via Swirral Edge with a quick stop off to bag Catstycam.  I think I'll let the pictures do the talking.

flat top of Helvellyn in the middle with the path leading up Swirral Edge.  Catstycam on the right

marching towards Striding Edge, Red Tarn comes into view

Striding Edge!
back a bit, back a bit...



back along Striding Edge

from Striding Edge to Catstycam

on top, yes there are easier ways up!

Start of the descent down Swirral Edge

Catstycam (been after this one for a while)

One of my favourites this one (just have a look at the header to my blog).  There are always lots of people but still well worth it.  Added fun today due to the triathlon.
