Friday Mountain Video
Lake District winter ridge action from Helvellyn and Blencathra this week.
Posted: 29 January 2010
If it's Friday, then it must be time for the Friday Matinee
regular helping of outdoors streaming video.
After a recent sneaky trip up to tackle a stunning Striding Edge in
full winter conditions, we thought we'd have a Helvellyn in winter
nostalgia fest, so here's some wintry views to whet your
appetite for the weekend.
Here's a very snowy summit plateau from back in 2008, check out the
views along Striding and Swirral Edges and down to Red Tarn.
And speaking of Striding Edge, here it in during some typically blowy
winter weather and looking well scoured and properly bleak...
And even more bleak, proper goggle conditions this time.
And what the hell, not Helvellyn, but here's Sharp Edge on Blencathra
from early this month. Wow...
And that's all for this week. Enjoy.
