863m. Walk in from either Patterdale or Glenridding to Helvellyn's south eastern ridge, from the hole in the wall you start the ridge proper. Follow this all the way to Helvellyn's flat summit, a path handrails the ridge just below the crest for less exposure.

βeta: Good foot and hand holds all the way along. Steap drops either side of the ridge. Snow at the far end of the ridge required crampons and ice axe to summit.

βeta: Excellent day out, sun was out all day, breeze was just enough, festival atmosphere and stopping for slower people wasn't all too bad with the excellent views. The steeper climb up to Helvellyn from the end of Striding was very loose.
