Sun 26th March – Grasmoor Walk

Starting Point: Buttermere (exact location TBA)

Car Parking: There are plenty of car parking options in Buttermere – National trust, pay & display and off road laybys.

Description: Grasmoor is an imposing fell that dominates the landscape of the North Western fells, where it is the tallest of the group.

Route: Starting in Buttermere we head out of the village to join the path that takes us up to Whiteless Pike. The ridge climbs past this Wainwright up to the higher peak of Wandope. Having paused to enjoy the fantastic view from the summit the path takes us toward the back of Grasmoor. It is a short ascent up to the plateau on top. Our descent is initially steep but easily navigable and soon the gradient flattens as we drop down toward Crummock water. The final part of our journey takes us along the small valley down the side of Rannerdale Knotts back to Buttermere.
