Grizedale and Deepdale
Moderate – hard, about 16km, 3000ft ascent
Flat walk up Grizedale leads us to the east ridge of Nethermost, a steep ascent of which gives access to the Helvellyn ridge (we will visit the summit time allowing). South over Dollywaggon to Grizedale tarn then a short climb to Deepdale Hause leads to a long decsent through Deepdale.
Starting point is the car park at the George Starkey Hut in Patterdale (grid ref 397160), on the right as you drive north through the village.
Some very mild scrambling, but no major difficulty. I am a slow walker so the pace will be easy for anyone to keep up with. We will be out high, so please come prepared with full waterproofs and warm clothes. NO JEANS AND PLEASE BRING A TORCH.
Meeting time: 8.30 AT THE LOWWOOD HOTEL
