Walk: Rydal, Grasmere, Elterwater, Loughrigg Tarn
Start Point: Pelter Bridge Grid Ref: NY 365 059
Distance: 9 miles Ascent: 1,900 feet
Weather: A cold, crisp and dry start warming up later on
Comments: Fifteen members enjoyed a dry day without too much standing water. Visibility was fantastic with such clarity that reflections in the water were stunning. We walked alongside Rydal Water, Grasmere, Elterwater and Loughrigg Tarn, returning by the back of Loughrigg.
