As you climb up from Ullswater, keep on looking back...
This is the view north-west from the top of St Sunday Crag: Helvellyn is the highest peak to the right, with Striding Edge running down towards us. To the left of Helvellyn are Nethermost Pike, High Crag and Dollywaggon Pike, forming the southern end of the Helvellyn ridge.
Here's Striding Edge again, in the distance: both sides of the ridge are equally sheer, but at least there is a path to follow! And what a day to try it...
