|Start Point:||Grasmere main car park||Grid Reference:||NY 339 078|
|Distance:||6.8 miles||Ascent:||1,400 feet|
|Weather:||Dry with sunny spells|
|Comments:||Choosing a short walk for Lisa's birthday we had hoped to walk up to Easedale Tarn and on past Codale Tarn, returning via Tarn Crag and Far Easedale. However, due to hold ups on the way to Grasmere we decided to turn back just before reaching Belles Knott. The descent gave us the opportunity to take in the views across to Seat Sandal and Fairfield and we arrived back in time for a little shopping.|
Sour Milk Gill . . .
and taking a closer look
The waterfall is always impressive . . .
and forms a pool to cool off
Easedale Tarn, a popular spot . . .
but we won't stop here
The beginning of the climb . . .
and higher up we have views to Seat Sandal and the Fairfield Horseshoe
Time to take a short break . . .
just below Belles Knott
At this point we changed our plans and started to return . . .
via the outward route . . .
back past the waterfall . . .
and across the footbridge over Easedale Beck
