Great hike up to the summit with my two boys. Note that trig point not quite at the summit, actual summit about 50 metres away (and about 1 metre higher). Amazing to think that in 1926 a plane was landed at the top - see the memorial stone just south of the summit.

Came up from Glenriding along Swirral edge and then descended back into Thirspot. Took me a little over 4 hours. Very busy today along the ridge which was good fun. Views were arguably better along the ridge rather then at the summit, but there isn't the space to stop and admire it sadly.

Great walk, yomp up from Glencoyne with partial inversions, up Raise and then into the spectral cloud/occluded sun. Just about got a view of Red Tarn, highest mountain of the year and highest trig-made all the more magical by a flock of snow buntings near the top.

If you define fell walking perfection as reaching the top of a magnificent mountain by an exciting scramble of a route, being rewarded with an exhilarating view in all directions in glorious sunshine and a refreshing breeze to cool a sweaty brow; then today Helvellyn ticked every box .Arrived from the wonderful Catystycam, up Swirral Edge and traveled on to Glenridding Dodd via 4 more Wainwrights.The pillar's position on the edge of the crags falling away to Red Tarn is superb. My 7th visit here.

Was dead lucky with the weather which was sunny with no wind on the way up and just about stayed clear at the trig which is in vgc but the flush has been painted gold.Great day out with good company now to the Kirkstone inn for tea,

Ah, the once often visited Helvellyn! Condition of pillar a little difficult to Classify (almost good condition) - stone built - spider plugged (tar?) . Pillar is a bit wonky, but the basic problem is bits of mortar missing. Views very good.

First of two days Wainwright bagging needed to pass via summit trig on route down Swirral Edge to Catstycam. Lovely day, visibility good and a fair few people at the summit as you would expect. Last on the summit sometime in the mid seventies so nice to catch up with the splendour of Helvellyn's ridges and spectacular summit views.

Arrived at trig late in day and had summit to ourselves,golden last of the sun views clear and razor sharp never seen Scotland so well defined from the lakes before.Trig could do with re pointing someone has made a repair with a white common house brick on one corner temp very chilly as sun went down.

Walked up the easy way from Glenridding and up Mires Beck and up to Hole-in-the-Wall and then along the top of Striding Edge, well you have to don't you, following a short slog up the scree slope the shelter was soon reached where it was time for lunch, then bagged the trig and set off back again along to Lower man, across to Whiteside and then took the path around the top of Red Screes and back down into Glenridding passing the Ski Club Hut and Youth Hostel. All in all a very good day out, and the bonus was it was clear on the top

Trig has some slight damage to lower section, but nothing too serious considering the amount of handling it must get. Superb views all around, once the cloud lifted.

Come back Michael Fish, all is forgiven. The latest batch of forecasters got it wrong today.Outer shell, hat & gloves needed on summit in thick cloud. First of several mountains bagged on a 12-mile linear walk up Helvellyn Gill to Blencathra Mining Museum. Trig pillar stands alone some distance from the shelter.

Took the Greenside road from Glenridding and parked near the bunk houses followed path left side of Glenridding Beck up to sheepfold then path alongside Red Tarn Beck up to Red Tarn skirting round Catstye Cam which until this point had hidden any sight of Helvellyn and what a great view this is with the tarn nestling some 750 feet below Helvellyn summit with Stiding Edge and Swirral Edge marching up either side good place for a cup of coffee and decide which way up,went for Striding Edge, no need to follow the path up to the ridge via the hole in the wall its a easy climb straight up the bank between Low and High Spying How,good views from here,there was no striding over Striding Edge as there was still some snow and ice infact I crossed most of the ridge on all fours ! anyway I made it across and after a steep scramble reached the summit,wonderful views all round on a clear sunny morning descended via Lower Man and Whiteside Bank, I did Helvellyn in the mid eighties from the Thirlmere side and found that way up a bit of a drudge unlike the great walk I experienced today.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in May 1950 costing 48.15s.0d. In 1952 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY11/12 in the Workington block. Flush bracket S5948 was levelled for height also in 1952. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1984. Stone built pattern. Spider centre had lost original OS plug and is now plugged with bitumen. The pillar photograph was taken by my mother while I stood at the pillar. Bagged 2/07/1991, GRP.

Ascent via Dunmail & Dollywaggon on very cold windy day. Fingers numb in the 30 seconds gloves were off to take picture.

Helvellyn Summit - la Lowry, only thing missing is a spindly dog!! Probably too cold for spindly dogs.
Helvellyn Blimey - one's appeared..!!

This is one that I went to many years old with a youth group. We went via Striding Edge (and I have a picture to prove it) I've logged it based on the fact that I have been there but am not likely to go back as I have other walks that I would like to do.

First mountain over 3000 feet climbed with my brother from Grasmere. Had lunch at Grisedale tarn. Glorious sunny day with spectacular views and Lancs beat Warwickshire in Gillette cup final at Lords. Descended to Inn at Thirlspot, but missed last bus to Keswick. Pub customer offered to take us in his car, where we caught Borrowdale bus to Longthwaite YH.Memorable weekend.

First of two visits. Made the mistake of doing it on a Bank Holiday - long tailbacks of pedestrian traffic on Striding Edge!
