Helvellyn & High Street
I'm off up to the Lakes next weekend, looking to do High Street one day and Helvellyn the next. Firstly, which way should I tackle Helvellyn as I sometimes hear conflicting stories. I'm a decent biker and am experienced in the mountains so don't mind big tricky descents. Secondly, should I ascend High Street from Troutbeck meaning a longer but hopefully more gradual climb or go from Hartsop and get it out the way. Any advice from people with experience in this area would be great. Thanks.
