Map 01 - Walk to Helvellyn from Glenridding

At 950m, Helvellyn, the third highest peak in the Lake District, qualifies as a proper mountain. As such it makes for a pretty challenging ascent even for experienced walkers. There's more than one way to reach the top of this monumental peak; for thrill-seekers though, the ascent via Striding Edge remains a Lakeland classic. However you reach the summit, the payback on a clear day is the same - a panoramic vista that takes in most of the Lake District's greatest peaks.

Map 01 gives you a choice of the following routes:

- Route 1 - Striding Edge, 7.5 miles, 5 - 6 hours, Difficult

- Route 2 - Grisedale Tarn, 10.5 miles, 6 - 7 hours, Difficult

- Route 3 - Keppel Cove, 8.5 miles, 5 - 6 hours, Difficult

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. Highly recommended! 19 Nov 2012
We decided to walk up Helvellyn yesterday, but as none of us had done it before we needed a map. We got this handy little guide in the shop in Glenridding. It was so clear and easy to follow. At several points we stopped to check our progress on the map. The guides are clear with clear written directions alongside the simple to follow map. The whole thing unfolds and refolds so quickly that it doesn't hold you up at all.
For novices and experts alike, these HandiHikes are an essential piece of kit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed, pocket/palm sized, easily understood 17 Sep 2012

I bought this and two other maps of areas in the lakes that i plan on walking and as a novice map reader i felt i could have been a little out of my depth. However these maps are great, they are simple, easy to read, and there is a handy map reading guide on one side once the map is unfolded. They are also waterproof, clearly printed so even reading some of the smaller information on the maps isn't too taxing, and they fold down to about the size of a post-it note.
