Swirral Edge - Helvellyn
Location: Helvellyn Length: 450m Grade: Unofficially Graded, regarded as roughly 0.5
Swirral Edge is the most common route of decent from Helvellyn if Striding Edge was climbed on the way up. It offers a little scramble down a ridge that links Helvellyn with Catstye Cam, and has great views over Red Tarn to Striding Edge. As with Striding Edge, Swirral Edge can be a very dangerous place in poor weather and should be avoided when it is icy, wet or windy unless you are highly experienced.
