Grasmere to Patterdale

A mere 7.5 miles or 12km
but about 900 meters up and 832 down
and I'm pooped.

Started with not much visibility but it is dramatic.

It didn't really improve

and we were climbing for the view.

And then all of a sudden it started to clear
 and we could see Grisedale Tarn
but as we got higher it didn't.

 Then as we walked along St Sunday Crag the view cleared,
but the wind was treacherous.
 The view of Ullswater: that's why we're here.
And then the rugged path down......


  1. I'm sure you were ready for a hearty meal and feet up after the climbing and descending. Scenery fabulous.
