Description: we take the steps going steeply up signposted Grisedale Pike. After a short climb the path rises more gently. We cross the fence at the step stile and bear right, the path continuing to climb. From Kinn we continue onto Sleet How to reach the summit of Grisedale Pike. We then follow the path along the edge of Hobcarton Crag to Hopegill Head. Then we head to Sand Hill Cairn, Crag Hill, then Sail, then Causey Pike, we take the little path down to Outerside, and finish off with Stile End and Barrow. This walk requires a little scrambling at times.
