Walk: Grasmere, Easedale Tarn, Sergeant Man, High Raise
Start Point: Broadgate car park Grid Reference: NY338078
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 2,200 feet
Time: 6 hours    
Weather: Fine but windy
Comments: 15 members set off from Grasmere to Easedale Tarn for coffee before the climb past Belles Knott & Eagle Crag. We paused to look over to Pavey Ark & Harrison Stickle before continuing to Sergeant Man and High Raise for lunch. As we dropped down from High Raise, looking west the dome of Great Gable could be seen in the distance. From Greenup Edge we descended to the top of Far Easedale, where the party split, with 4 going over Calf Crag, Gibson Knott & Helm Crag and the rest going down Far Easedale back to Grasmere.
