Around Easedale in Snow
Sunday, 5 February 2017
10.69 miles/17.2 km
3,005 ft/916 m ascent
6 hours 30 minutes
Set off from Grasmere with plenty of mist on the fell summits. Got mistier as we ascended Helm Crag (1,329ft/405m) and completely cloudy by the top of Gibson Knott (1,378ft/420m). Boggy terrain and difficult to identify a good route to the top of Calf Crag (1,762ft/537m) and then up to the top of Codale Head (2,402ft/732m) …
… where the skies cleared to give some great views of Ullscarf (2,382ft/726m) and the Langdale valley.
Lengthy trek over the Blea Rigg (1,775ft/541m) ridge to Silver How (1,296ft/395m) watching the clouds dancing in the afternoon sunshine!
