Walk: Sadgill, Great Howe, Grey Crag, Harrop Pike, Tarn Crag, Sadgill
Start Point: Sadgill Grid Ref: NY 483 057
Distance:  7 miles Ascent:  1,750 feet
Weather: Rolling mist clearing in the afternoon
Accompanied by:

Marie, Andrea, Gill and Shep, led by me

Comments: The direct route onto Great Howe was the best way I have taken onto this fell. Grey Crag is then a gradual climb, followed by an easy stroll to Harrop Pike. Another climb leads up to Tarn Crag and then a gradual descent leads to Brownhowe Bottom. The Longsleddale track is always rather tedious.
