Glenridding, Grizedale, Dollywagon Pike, Helvellyn, Keppell Cove

Helvellyn Walk - 22 November 2008
11-mile walk that took me 6 hours, taking in Glenridding, Grizedale, Dollywagon Pike, Helvellyn, Lower Man, Raise, Keppel Cove zig-zags and Greenside. A beautiful clear day, but incredibly cold. In fact, it was so cold that when I stopped for a drink on the summit of Helvellyn my Sigg water bottle was completely frozen!

The views were incredible with Scotland and North Wales visible, and there was a slight dusting of snow on the tops.

Rounded off the walk with a pint at the Travellers Rest, Glenridding - a great walkers' pub.
