Ascent Trip Report

Headed from Helvellyn down to Swirral Edge and across to Catstye Cam. Passed 2 groups who were lost in the cloud and pointed them in the right direction and passed 5 mountain bikers carrying their bikes up Hellvelyn. The wind picked up and was blowing gusts... it was still foggy in the cloud... and still wet with mist and ocassional showers. Arrived at the summit around 12:30pm. Descended via the north-west ridge to Keppel Cove dam then picked up the path to Glenridding arriving at the pub about 2:20pm. The descent was very steep and I slipped and fell 2m on the scree my rucksack catching a rock and possibly saving me from a more serious fall.
