The Lake District National Park Authority has advertised a role that mountain lovers might dream of - as it involves climbing Helvellyn every day.
It is seeking a new felltop assessor who will make a solo daily climb up the mountain from Glenridding in four hours or less and give a verdict on the mountaintop conditions.
The authority said the person who gets the job must have significant winter mountaineering skills.
Such a service helps the park to provide its own weather information, including details such as the temperature at 3,000 ft, which could be very useful for those keen to go walking
in the mountains in the winter months.
Those investing in outdoor gear for climbing mountains in the winter may want to ensure they are well equipped and aware of weather conditions on Helvellyn and other Lake District peaks.
Striding Edge, a narrow ridge on the Glenridding side of the mountain, contains several memorials to climbers who have fallen to their deaths.
