A walk around the Glenridding skyline climbing Helvellyn by way of Striding Edge. The initial walk up Miresbeck to Birkhouse Moor affords wonderful views back down Ullswater, before the walk heads on over probably the best ridge walk in Lakeland over the airy Striding Edge to reach the summit of Helvellyn. With the majority of the days climbing behind you, the walk continues over Lower Man, Whiteside Bank, Raise and Stybarrow Dodd, before turning Eastwards over Green Side and starting its descent back down to Glenridding. This walk is quite long and strenuous, but the views reward the effort!
