At 950m, Helvellyn is third in command when it comes to England’s highest mountains (second to Scafell Pike and Scafell). Set in utterly stunning scenery and with some fun scrambling and a ridge line to the summit, this trip levels you up from hillwalking to basic mountaineering. It is a day and a mountain to remember!
This trip starts just after breakfast and will take approximately 6 hours with time to stop and enjoy the views. Along the way you will be learn about the mountain landscape and you will be taught skills which you can take away and use on your own mountain trips.
Our scrambling trips are Grade I scrambles which means they are suitable for beginners. As with all scrambling trips there will be some exposure to heights so bring some clean underwear just in case! 😉
What is scrambling? Scrambling is a full body experience where you will be using your hands and legs to climb up steep terrain. It takes you from trekking to basic mountaineering skills. It is more technical than hillwalking but it does not involve the use of technical equipment such as ropes.
