Thousands of people cross the flat top of Nethermost Pike every year, and thousands more toil up its western slope. Yet their diaries record "climbed Helvellyn today". For Helvellyn is the great magnet that draws the crowds to Nethermost Pike: the latter is climbed accidently, almost unknowingly, only because it is an obstacle in the route to its bigger neighbour.
