Striding Edge Cumbria

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Digital-Vision created this excellent drone video of a famous (yet deadly) rock ridge in northern England. It's called Striding Edge, and it's the most popular route to ascend Helvellyn, one of the highest mountains of the English Lake District in County Cumbria.  Notoriously dangerous, the ridge's most famous victim was the Romantic artist Charles Gough, who fell to his death here in 1805; his demise inspired poems by William Wordworth and Walter Scott, two of the most famous men of letters in 19th century Britain.
