North Western Lake District

Route: Grasmoor, Hopegill Head and Whiteside

Area: North Western Lake District

Date of walk: 24th January 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 9.3 miles

Ascent: 3,600 feet

I set off from Millbeck about 10am. The conditions looked very promising and it proved to be a fantastic winter walk. I went along Lorton Vale and turned up Lad Hows to get to the top of Grasmoor (2,791 feet). The paths were very slippery and microspikes were essential.

After climbing Grasmoor, I went on to Hopegill Head (2,525 feet) and along the wonderful ridge to Whiteside (2,317 feet), descending via Dodd and getting back to Millbeck about 4pm

I’ve not included a route map as this was a walk from home, but there is a link to Hopegill Head below
