Don't worry pal if you get tired I will carry yer rucksack for you

Actually there is a radio station that does regular weather updates for Helvellyn, if the weather is good then it can be done. And don't worry to much about the Death rate on Helvellyn... more people have died on the Yorkshire moors.
