From Glenridding we will have a gradual ascent from the village, past Greenside mines and up the zig zag path at Kepple Cove to ascend Whiteside (a Wainwright Fell) and then on to Lower Man and the summit of Helvellyn, where you will have views from way above Red Tarn and the famous Striding & Swirral Edges and reaching all the way to Ullswater far below, as well as a panoramic view of the the whole Lake District Mountain Range on a clear day.
We return via the same route, but from this direction you can appreciate the views towards the North Lakes, Blencathra and Skiddaw, and on a very clear day as far as the Solway Firth and maybe the Scottish coast!
All walks are subject to change due to adverse weather and you must accept the Sound Mountain Judgement of our experienced leaders on these occasions.
