Right Parallel Gully.
Looking down Right Parallel Gully.
Jimmy, myself, Willy and Ian ( the shadow!), heading over to Helvellyn, around Brown Cove, from Brown Cove Crags.
Semi frozen Red Tarn and Striding Edge.
We descended to the "notch" on Striding Edge from Helvellyn and then down a little grade 1 slope/gully to Red Tarn and round to Number 2 Gully.
Again, this was straightforward, and the rope never saw the light of day!
A very enjoyable, faff free day out in stunning weather
with an early finish - result!
