Explorer WALX – Catstycam & Birkhouse Moor

24th April 2021 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

Catstycam & Birkhouse Moor

Our Explorer WALX are open to all walkers. You are very welcome to bring your Nordic Poles or Trekking Poles if you wish. Please note: All WALX are subject to change due to adverse weather and you must accept the Sound Mountain Judgement of our experienced leaders on these occasions.

Ascending from Glenridding to Greenside Mines & on up Catstycam via the South East ridgeline, this route ticks off two Wainwright’s and will give you a taste of what to expect on the Helvellyn Edges with fabulous views of Swirral and Striding Edge before descending to Red Tarn…the perfect spot for lunch! We will descend to the tarn via the start of Swirral Edge (the easy bit!!).  After lunch, we will head towards the famous Hole in the Wall to view the start of Striding Edge, and returning back over Birkhouse Moor for a good stride out on this flat middle part of our walk followed by a pretty decent to Lantys Tarn & back to Glenridding.

12 km with 850 meters of climb.
