Striding Edge, Helvellyn
Striding Edge is more like tight rope walking than mountain-climbing. To summit, visitors traverse a narrow path littered with rock shards that can cause a fall or twist. Most perilous in winter, many travelers enjoy the difficulty of this journey and are rewarded with a most picturesque display from the plateau upon terminus.
This venture is not for the faint of heart. Though not a common occurrence, people have died falling from the path. Many more have suffered injuries of all kinds, so pay attention when you take that next step!
