Helvellyn via Striding Edge - October 30th 2007
Grisedale Valley looked nice and sunny - cold and crisp
Sasha was happy paddling in Red Tarn - a little cold for me!
My brothers dog Sasha was our companion for the day. This was about the only time she was behind us!
The summit shrouded in mist - we decided to give it a go anyway
