Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike and Dollywagon Pike

18 km / 11 miles
900m ascent
7 hours

We start from Glenridding with a nice warm up following Grisedale Beck up to it’s Tarn. Maybe we’ll dip our toes in the water, before continuing the steep ascent to Dollywagon Pike (858 m/2815 ft).
We’re on the tops now and undulate over to Nethermost Pike and onto Helvellyn (950 m/3117 ft) with great views on all sides.

We follow the ridge to our last peak before descending into Glenridding Common and through the historical area of Greenside mines and back to the village for tea and cakes or maybe beer and crisps.
