Arduous climb but the views of Ullswater were worth it. If Helvellyn isn't for you, St Sunday may be. If you prefer to hike the valley floor, that is very beautiful also.

A long climb up here after first walking up to Grisedale Tarn but well worth it for the views. A good high level alternative to the scarier Striding Edge !
