Route Outline

The summit of Catstye Cam offers an excellent objective for a Lake District walk. Despite its proximity to Helvellyn, few walkers visit this hill so you can have an enjoyable walk away from the masses. The summit is linked to Helvellyn by Swirral Edge and offers a grand view over Red tarn to Striding Edge.
