6s and 7s #2

A walk up Helvelyn, Cumbria in early spring, very early one Sunday morning in 2010. This sound piece was made up of environmental sounds (breath and heartbeat, streams, wind) and snippets of conversation with other walkers I met coming the other way enquiring about the weather and visibility from the summit. On my return I listened at the door of Patterdale church where the Sunday service was in progress.
Helvelyn was the first mountain in the Lake District I ever climbed age 8 with my Dad and sister Katharine. On our return we were bought ice cream sodas in Dodd's café in Grasmere, and I had a cloth badge of Helvelyn 3118ft sewn on my anorak.
