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.

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.
